O.k., this is not really funny. See here at taobao

Would someone care to order one of these?

Is the Jolla tablet cloned prior to delivery or is it stock that Jolla did not pay for?

if true I have paid quite nice premium to Jolla when preordered it from their webshop! :)

o: How have you found this ...

cocovina ( 2015-12-16 15:42:36 +0300 )edit

one of the last pictures https://img.alicdn.com/imgextra/i4/65953081/TB2jQaMipXXXXbKXXXXXXXXXXXX_!!65953081.jpg suggests, that there are some available.

the price is so ridiculous tiny that i'm really thinking about giving this offer a chance.

Comes with Android: see the downmost picture (table) at the taobao link...

Is that the stock that the manufacturing company has produced and Jolla not purchased due to lack of cash? :-D

I'm a Chinese and we Jolla fans in China are discussing about this. Here is something you MUST pay attention to:

  1. The link you shared, the tablet there is android-pre-installed! Currectly no way to get Sailfish OS back.
  2. The saler announced it has the same hardware and package as Jolla tablet, he also said it's from the manual factory
  3. It has no any warranty from Jolla
  4. There DOES have a store that announced it's the REAL Jolla tablet(with Sailfish OS), I can't find it currectly.

AGAIN: Anything on Taobao can be fake, low-qualitied, be careful.

We have fans here who alreay ordered the so called "REAL Jolla tablet". I'll update more info about that we they get the tablet.

For the person who sell the "REAL Jolla tablet", he said it's from crowedsourcing on Indiegogo


I lost the chat history with that taobao saler. I'll update if I find the screenshot.


For the android jolla tablet: it's not Jolla Tablet

For the Sailfish OS Jolla Tablet:

  1. It's the real Jolla Tablet, they're selling it without Jolla's permission. (Comfired by Jolla CEO on mer-metting)
  2. The saler has closed the online store
  3. For those who have ordered the Jolla Tablet on Taobao, the tablets is delivering on the way
  4. We asked the saler and he replied that he was not sure he could get more Jolla Tablet

chating history


We: Will you sell more jolla tablets in the future?

Saler: I'm not sure.

We: Not sure? So you only have this branch of tablets?

Saler: Yes.


We: the first branch of tablets were delivering?

Saler: we'll deliver it tomorrow.

I doubt that it is fake or low quality. It's not worth to copy something unknown like a Jolla tablet. I would buy it from taobao, to really get it this time. Of course it should have SF installed. After this news there is probably no chance that we Indiegogo contributors will ever see our tablets (besides the first batch).

@tyler: thank you for your answer, it is great to have you here!

I have to confess that I am realy tempted to order one of these tablets out of curiousity but I also see the caveats.

AkiBerlin ( 2015-12-17 08:35:02 +0300 )edit

This is a fake, I get a video from the seller, in fact, it is Android system, its UI is just like sailfish very much,but not sailfish.

in China a pad named 'aigo x86' that use the same kind of mold . so taobao's pad is reprocessed 'aigo x86' , same exterior , different OS.

"We are looking into this"? Vague as ever. Do these guys ever say anything straight? They should be politicians!

What is there to "look into" anyway? Jolla ordered the production. Factory produced. Jolla did not pay. Factory got pi$$ed off and tried to recover their losses by selling directly. End of story.

pichlo ( 2015-12-17 14:22:00 +0300 )edit

@pichlo so easy it is not. if the exclusivity is to jolla, jolla as not been officially down, the product should not be spread in this way. they could have been more patience...

@iamyinweijian imagine you paid for the jolla tablet, and you still not have it.and these are by taobao, and you buy it ("again"). would you still don't care?

cemoi71 ( 2015-12-18 18:05:17 +0300 )edit

maybe one of these is one that you already paid for it...

cemoi71 ( 2015-12-18 18:06:03 +0300 )edit

@cemoi71 sorry ,i don't pay for it,but i am going to a few days later to buy it,but now...Is good news for people who can use taobao buy it...cry......

iamyinweijian ( 2015-12-18 18:15:58 +0300 )edit

The same with you. The tablet is made by China,and we chinese people cannot buy it from jolla offical site,what a joke!

BirdZhang ( 2015-12-19 12:45:41 +0300 )edit

@BirdZhang I remembered jolla phone only sell in HongKong,but someone in mainland China only go to HongKong buy it by plane or bus.It's so tired,!!! WHAT A BIG JOKE! I CAN'T STOP LAUGHING.

Yes, there are allot of posts over here..https://together.jolla.com/question/129869/bought-a-jolla-tablet-elsewhere-whats-your-experience-been/ for Jolla fans who have bought a Jolla tablet using exactly that route. So far, there have been no posts to say it's android and/or fake.

RussH ( 2016-03-07 16:21:32 +0300 )edit

I didnt bought a tablet, but i bought a phone via yoybuy. i cant post a review with pics since my karma is too low. it's android, i mean all the apps are android. LOVE THE JOLLA MUSIC APP!
