Just after Nokia N1, Jolla has announced a new tablet based on its proprietary Sailfish OS, which will be also retail in India starting in second quarter next year, Only IF, Jolla manages to receive $380,000 in funding.
The specifications sound pretty decent. It is fitted with a 7.85 Inch IPS LCD display with 2048 x 1536 pixels (330 ppi), powered by 64 bit Intel Atom quad core processor clocked at 1.8 GHz.
There is 32 GB storage, MicroSD card slot and 2 GB RAM for smooth multi tasking. Speaking of which, Jolla claims the new tablet to have “the world’s best, state of the art multitasking experience.” Jolla considers app switching as a primary need for users and aims for the Jolla Tablet to offer better App switching compared to any other tablet around.
Other features include 5 MP rear camera, 2 MP front shooter and a 4300 mAh battery. Jolla has been working hard on improving its Sailfish OS for the past one year. The OS has been regularly updated and has come a long way with 350 new features and 13000 bug fixes. The open source OS has been designed to work with easy gestures. You can also sideload Android Apps.
Jolla is asking for user opinions to know what they would want to see in Jolla Tablet. The new Jolla Tablet is 8.3 mm thick and has been designed on Nokia’s home turf – finland. A small group which broke off from Nokia camp is all set to challenge Nokia N1 with an equally eye catching endeavour.
The company has turned to Indiegogo for funding and distribution. First 1000 backers can get it for $189, the next thousand for $199. If Jolla gets an enthusiastic response, the tablet will start shipping by the second quarter next year in EU, Norway, Switzerland, United States, India, China, Hong Kong, and Russia.
