Not Everyone Who Ordered A Jolla Tablet Will Receive One

Filed under
Linux

While Jolla was saved last month by a fresh round of financing, even now not everyone who backed the Jolla Tablet project on IndieGoGo will be receiving a tablet.

Jolla announced in their New Year's Greeting, "The bad news here is that we are not able to complete the production to fulfill all contributions. In other words, all of our backers will not get a Jolla Tablet." But Jolla's Juhani Lassila says that people won't go empty-handed but they are working on "some positive surprises" for those not receiving a Jolla Tablet. Details on how these backers will be compensated has yet to be explained.

    As you may know, Jolla is a company formed from ex-Nokia employees, the developers that were responsible of the Linux-based Nemo, MeeGo and Maemo operating systems.

  • New Year’s Greetings from Jolla!

    Today it’s time to close 2015 and enter into a new exciting year. 2015 has been a memorable year for us, to say the least. Sailfish OS has matured substantially this year, evolving to Sailfish OS 2.0 and supporting multiple form factors. Even though we’ve said it often, now we really feel that the software is ready for scaling, and new partners are able to utilize it easily and powerfully in their projects. In the summer of 2015 we were honored to announce the first major licensing deal with India’s largest smartphone vendor Intex Technologies. We’re super excited about this partnership and look forward to making a new Sailfish OS powered smartphone available in India by spring 2016. As mentioned in Antti Saarnio’s previous post we also have some other exciting projects cooking and we can’t wait to tell you more about those as soon as they mature.

    During 2015 we also worked hard on the Jolla Tablet project, which was first introduced in November 2014. Our very talented team made a lot of progress in the project, and the first small batch of Jolla Tablets were shipped in the autumn to our Indiegogo contributors. The project altogether had some serious unexpected setbacks in the autumn, and we were forced to postpone the whole project schedule many times – these were communicated in several blog posts along the summer and autumn.
