What can we excpect from jolla during MWC? I hope that some community members will visit the jolla area to see if they have something to share. Would be nice if you can report back what you learn and see.

Questions: New devices? New Partnership? OpenSource sailfish? Any new ports? What happened with sailfish foundation? Refund part two? Who is attending from the jolla side? The yellow girls?

Please report back what you see as you see it.

Jolla has announced sooo much in the past. Most of the projects never saw the light of day. There's no reason to assume the Jalasoft partnership or the China deal will be any different. And the Xperia... well, wait and see.

I've just been at the MWC booth and as a jolla user had to say thanks for SFOS and Jolla 1. Also I was quickly playing around with the Sony device, although this being a demonstration model it felt like SFOS. No reliable information about availability.

MWC2017 just closed and for all of you that couldn't attend here's a view of what was on the jolla table: image description

also 2 pictures of the Jolla-Watch, although this is nothing but a prototype: image description image description

@JulianChokkattu has as series of tweets following the Jolla press conference, which gives a bit of an insight into Jolla (and Sailfish OSes) plans regarding Russia and China. There a a lot of photographs of the slideshow presentation, along with his own commentary. The tweets are worth a look through.

Great news! ...but will the new devices have the official android support ? or are they "just community port"?

From the press release: "Jolla is aiming to release an official version of its Sailfish OS for a range of Sony Mobile’s Xperia devices". So there is hope that android support will be included, but we yet have to find out the real deal

@Dave999 This is your first post without "refund" word. Just wanted to remind you in order to correct yourself. :)

tvicol ( 2017-02-26 08:46:29 +0300 )edit

No, it's not. So you miss the refund. Great. I don't think jolla will announce the refund @ a press event @MWC if they ever do. But a blog post would do. But sure, hope to get it sooner rather than later.
