to enforce a European like mobile phone Technology.
I would be great that that an European Mobile works with a European devices constructor too.
The mwc is the ideal moment to acquire new partners, clients and investors...

A suggestion for this, would be really interesting to approach BQ, a Spanish smartphone constructor.
Furthermore they have some devices which have the Galileo dedicated chip (this year should be the upcoming of the Galileo system)...

They seems to have for me some nice devices:
Prices are really corrects too i think.

If they may have sailfish on their phones, then i would buy one for sure.

  • Fairphone would be nice too, but is more a kind of rolls-royce, if i'm allowed to make the comparison.
  • Puzzlephone has still no hardware.
  • TRI is for me not really a special case (not really European, but has not standard connections, is a kind of niche product).

I forget the HMD Globals, they are with nokia both by the mwc.
Would be a dream too, having business with them right?
Dimensions are not the same comparing with jolla
Bq seems to be more accessible.
But why not, if no-one try, then nothing happen. it would be a pity not to do it
Sometimes happens some magic in such of exhibitions. All people move, think and react totally different as every days...

What do you think about it?
Would be nice if jolla try to acquire more hardware constructor there not?

Have nice sail

PS: about galileo, the sony experia x announced in mwc has a chip which may support it:
PS2: MWC 2017 ended with some quantity of news and new announced devices. Topic is now closed.

I think BQ has nice phones! I hope with SailfishOS soon! Regarding the others: 1) It seems Fairphone folks are not intrested - I hope I'm wrong 2) Puzzlephone is long way off 3) Turing phone is too expensive for me

@alloj for the fairphone as i understood here in tjc that they have many problems, and one of them, is that the fp boss has shortly made a burn-out , because of business growing problems. Seems that they have not so much capacity vs the demand too...
Puzzle phone is nice, but where is the hardware? Turing-phone is too special.
