In series of tweets a new community device is hinted at. Could it be revealed at the Barcelona Mobile World Conference at the end of this month?

Today was the community round table at FOSDEM with live broadcast on youtube. Very interesting one! At the end Veskuh sneaked a little that we have to expect something at MWC 2017, which is indeed in about three weeks from now. Expect Sailfish OS to be able to do more is some word I remember and something about Jolla C+ or similar. But nothing very clear right now. To sailfishs capabilities he said not only app wise :) so fingers crossed for new hardware and a big update after MWC ;)

Update: here is the link

I missed this - timezone error on my part - so just watched it using the email link. Very interesting. Is there a transcript? I'd mainly like to know who's talking.

It'd be great if someone could edit the video and add a name when someone first speaks.

I think most people were introduced during the broadcast bit can't help with that. Transcriot is not available as far as I know...

@drummer12 I skipped the first few minutes while people were settling down, but the speakers from the audience were not introduced. I suspect everybody there knew them: the guy who rebuilt mer with Qt5, the guy who talked too quietly and was asked on IRC to speak up, the guy who talked about the droid app - even the guy who sits in front of the camera who I think spoke but I wasn't sure '. Not vital, but I'd like to put nicks to these folk.

My own fault - I'll try to get the time right in future! When I tuned in - too late - there was a chat feed on the screen. Maybe someone was typing names there.
