This article talks about that "You will soon be able turn your Android device into a Sailfish device"

Jolla pioneered the ability to use existing Android hardware adaptations with the libhybris project and the first Jolla device is built upon an Android hardware adaptation (but is not Android, just uses the hardware adaptation)

What devices would you like to see SailfishOS on - what chipset, how much RAM, how big internal storage, what resolution and screen size, cores and speed? .. and why?

If a device exists already as an answer, vote it up!

One device per answer!

Acer Iconia A1! I don't like Android so would love to use Sailfish in that too! :)

Droid 5, if leaks are true it should be very comparable to current Jolla (S4 dualcore, 1Gb RAM, 16Gb internal) but better screen 720p and HWKB

Should the title read 'Android-based devices'?

I see a lot of demand in the Answer section for Jolla (or nemo) Tablet. But before that happens, you must support landscape first. Please make it happen ;-)

I think this would be a nice improvement for the main Jolla website: allowing people to sign-up with their e-mail and current phone model they would wish to have Sailfish OS on. They could then be announced when Sailfish is available for their phone. I have friends who are interested in this.

I would like to see Sailfish OS on a LG Nexus 4.

I bought it because of its geeky potential. The idea beneath its buyout was "testing new OSes [particularly Sailfish OS] on it before eventually buying a device dedicated to the OS". I would like to test Sailfish OS (on my Nexus 4) before buying a Jolla device in the future.

The Nexus 4 would make a wonderful SailfishOS device hardware-wise, considering the rounded edges of the front glass; from the moment I first got mine it felt like it was taunting me to interact via edge swipes like on the N9. A port for the Nexus 4 would fit the form factor better than the original OS does!

And personally, although I've ordered a Jolla, I doubt it'll work on my cell carrier. A port for the Nexus 4 or Nexus 5, with their near-complete frequency coverage, would allow me to use SailfishOS as my daily driver even if the Jolla device itself doesn't support more than it says on the box.

Sony Xperia Z1 compact would be fit my need with SailfishOS and video/camera phone

Waterproof (IP55 and IP58) Dust-resistant (IP55)

Why ? European mobile OS and can handle well in my hand and stay safe from dust pocket with better still picture 20 Mpixels

As I am a supporter of the "smaller" phones I can easily give an example of where the system would be very desirable among people of similar to my preferences on the size of the phone.,sailfish-os The top rated comment speaks for itself:

My sim card is jumping between Jolla and Z1Compact on a week-to-week basis. I would LOVE that kind of hardware (both spec-wise and quality feel) with Sailfish.

Samsung Galaxy S3 i9300, because it's a powerful device, and many people have it (S3 and S2 are the Samsung devices most sold) Sorry for my bad english ;)

Exynos might be a problem. Also i9305 support would be good.

Oliver ( 2014-01-07 18:48:34 +0200 )edit

Don't underestimate the amount of S3 mini and S4 mini that are around. Would love to see it run on those two too.

I contacted them to speak about Sailfish. Maybe they have contacted Jolla. I don't know.

Something with 4 inches. Jolla is too big.

I agree, it's one of the few things I like about the iphone up until the 5s, the size.

I vote for the Transformer product line: with SailfishOS and a physical keyboard you'd be pretty close to have the perfect netbook/tablet convertible.

yes a tf300 port would be great

Oliver ( 2014-01-04 18:37:50 +0200 )edit

yes, Asus TF700T as well

The (yet to be produced) Neo900. That would be a quite nice upgrade.

edit flag offensive delete publish link more



The only problem with this is you cannot use libhybris, but I like the idea, if they can make it run with N900 drivers even better

szopin ( 2014-01-14 00:31:18 +0200 )edit

Yes, we have to support open hardware, like the Neo900!

ffelgenh ( 2014-01-31 12:30:31 +0200 )edit

I am pretty sure once Neo 900 is out there would be efforts to run Nemo on it. There is already a N900 port for Nemo. So sailfish can join the distro wave if it wants.

SailfishOS on RaspberryPI 2 would be nice :=)

It seems like it might come true.

nick75 ( 2015-02-24 16:41:24 +0200 )edit

Would be great to run Sailfish OS on a Raspberry. Together with Raspberries DSI-Display that would be a great base for a DIY-Tablet.

Oppo Find 5 (or Oppo Find 7 announced soon) because we are free to flash the Android ROM we want (CyanogenMod, PAC ROM, Paranoid Android, OmniROM..) Why not Sailfish OS ? :) [ ]
