Very Impressive design : In fact even more beautiful than my Jolla, that I considered as one the most stylish Phone I ever get. The version Black Wyvern is striking. One major progress in Sailfish respectability as able to atract an highend phone supplier

Why is there not even an announcement on blog.jolla.com about this news? Sounds like a pretty big deal to me that Jolla have convinced another (boutique) OEM to use Sailfish. They should be using this news to wash away the bad taste left over by the tablet fail ...

Or they should be careful not to gather more dirt. But are they? No, in a situation where new partners are essential any partners will do... My guess is that they will need to invest on a washing machine later.

Jolla said they are in talks with lots of smaller parties, so blogging about every single one at crowdfunding stage would be a bit silly.

I assume they are waiting for the MWC to come up with a whole bunch of news alongside the launch of the intex AquaFish device.

@hubat Well, they haven't. That's quite irritating, really.

Is the switch for Sailfish driven by the previous Jolla's project to bring a secure phone through connection with the company producing SSH ? One could note the difficulties for Blackberry to produce a secured Android, although they have plenty of engineers ... Thus for a stat-up as Turin Robotics !
