If your new here and want to know more about polling here in Together, see this first: https://together.jolla.com/question/16697/together-howto-polling-in-together/

The idea of this poll is very simple. Which "special" or normal other half would you like to have the most in Jolla if these other half's would be available on shop right now?

There will be 8 different Other Half options available for voting. It could be also called an "unofficial competition" for favourite Other Half.

UPDATE!

The Other Half contest for Other Half Option 8 Contestant has ended and the winner chosen by Marc Dillon (@Marc) is:

@mgbler

with Ambience Light The Other Half idea!

Ambience Light TOH: Integrated fiberglass combined with LED so that the whole TOH or parts of it glow in adjustable colors. Could also be used as WakeUp Light

@mgbler 's Ambience Light TOH idea is also available for voting in this poll as the option number eight!

Thank you for everyone in participating and please remember to vote for your favourite from the current eight different options available.

For general discussion I made a separate answer box "Chatbox" where you can add own comments regarding different other half's found at the bottom of the page.

For this poll to be honest, choose only one option from eight. No cheating!

Thanks.

These options will be wiki posts so no karma is awarded from it.

Now start voting please! What is the other half of your dreams?

Dual-sim card ability maybe for option 8 ? As mentionned here : Dual-Sim

Moved from the voting options: In order to be practical, the physical QWERTY keyboard TOH would most likely also require that the phone can always be operated in landscape mode. Just having a keyboard would not be enough on its own.

how about a more rugged TOH, probably made of hard rubber? At least one with a durable and non-slippery coating.

about full keyboard TOH: this would be nice indeed, but it has to be very compact. The phone isn't the smallest by default design and to my preference a sleek and light overall appearance of the device would outweigh the benefits of a full keyboard.

I would really love the dual-SIM option as well - especially if it was a DSA (Dual SIM Active), meaning that both SIM cards can be active and connected to their respective networks at the same time.

toh gamepad, e-ink screen, toh android unit..not sure what i mean by that but sorta like a dedicated android other half to separate that os from jolla, guess it doesn´t work like that..

viskari ( 2014-01-19 21:05:04 +0300 )edit

A better camera (+ bigger battery to make good use of the extra depth necessary for the bigger sensor).

Travel-oriented otherhalf that I would put on when leaving for airport. Ideal combo would be extra battery, 2nd SIM card slot, eInk display for boarding pass and/or reading books, ebook reader, offline maps/navigation apps bundled in, maybe a better lens/microphone for travel photos/videos.

There might be problems with OH's having multiple features to be commercially available though since they would be tailored to suit persons own preferences. However that would be also the ultimate other half of dreams too!

@Amelot says: "The Other Half that I would like to build ? Remember the film the Matrix, the Nokia 8110 ? What if your Jolla opened up like that on both the top and bottom ? There obviously certain issues to work out like does it answer directly, or is there a window so you can screen your calls. Push a button and the sliders open from the the middle and shalck! It seems to me that the mechanics would need to be on the back side to move the covers. To keep it simple just a cover for the lens on the back as well. The other issue I see with this is not to inhibit the use of the swipe from the bottom an top edge. The screen is not at the edge of the top or bottom, regardless this would have to be taken into account in the design. Otherwise when open it would be twice as long as normal, and would also be slightly thicker."
