Shipping a beta version is a mistake! I don't want to buy a beta version without bluetooth or fingerprint support if it is not even clear if those are ever supported. (even though I don't need the fingerprint much I would guess) It feels wrong after all this time (from the first Jolla version on) to still buy a beta version. There not even a guarantee bluetooth or fingerprint or other sensor stuff will work for the paid money in the 1 year software support.

As much as I like the idea for a paid software model even one that guarantees me 1 more year of updates for that device it is a dissappointment that we will get a beta version with not only missing full hardware support but also potential software issues like lags and hickups.

Will it be possible to buy "SailfishOS X" as final version (with full hardware support and without laggy UI) in the future or is buying "early access" beta usage the only option here?
