Jolla – A Different Type Of Smartphone


A new smartphone called Jolla (pronounced as Yol-la), made by the Ex-Nokia team, and is now presented first time. The Operating System used for this gadget is known as Sailfish which is based on MeeGo Software that was only used once in the Nokia’s handset called Nokia N9.

“For a couple of years we haven’t had anything really interesting in the mobile phone market,” said Antti Saarnio, chairman and co-founder of Jolla. “This creates opportunities for newcomers to come in. It’s different, but it’s purposefully different.”



Out Look

The display of this device would be 4.5 inches which is quite sufficient.

8 Mega Pixel camera is suggested for this smartphone. Jolla also supports 4G technology. One deep-routed thing is that this upcoming gadget is to foothold the Google’s Android apps.


Memory and Battery

Jolla has 16 GB internal memory. Replaceable battery will make this phone a treat for the users.

The Other Half

This exciting name ‘The Other Half’ is given by the team for the other feature category of the device.

The most interesting and attention grabbing feature added to this smartphone is that, as the phone has the facility available of changing/replacing its back covers, the Operating System will sense the colour and will change its compatible with the colour selected. This is something that will really attract the freaks towards it.


The Jolla’s team has announced Jolla to be unveiled at the end of the year and they will only be available online.



The Story behind

Sometimes, conflict of two parties comes out to be beneficial for the third party. We, the customers, are the third party in this case.

Mr. Saarnio left Nokia in 2011 lousy with other members of his team who were working on a collaborated Intel-Nokia project which has to launch such an operating System that would work in the opposition to Android and Apple’s iOS.

The conflict started after Nokia N9’s release in which the team thought that N9 was not given enough platforms which it deserved because it was considered an awesome phone. Even after Jolla’s declaration, Mr. Saarnio is still having positive hopes for Nokia.

We too wish Jolla all the best.
