Hello, I would like to buy the Jolla smartphone. But I have some question about The Other Half. If I create the Other Half like Wireless charging or hardware keyboard... May I develop some special software/update for OS or the Sailfish OS will work immediately with new hardware without some updates? Thank You very much

Also, I am looking for the Nokia N950. I will buy the Nokia N950 in good/mint condition - It could be without charger and original box... but working device. I will be happy if anyone have one N950 for sell. Thank You

A wireless charger you can make without any OS modifications. Hardware keyboard would involve support from OS side, but it is defenitely possible since TOHKBD is going to work as well.
