Jolla's Sailfish OS-running smartphone out now for €399

Jolla, a group made up of ex-Nokia employees who previously worked on MeeGo, has finally launched its smartphone. Unimaginatively named Jolla, it runs on the Sailfish OS, which itself is based on MeeGo. The smartphone is currently only available to those living in Finland, but will be rolling out to 135 more countries in the future. If you do live in Finland, you can pick it up for €399, which roughly translates to Rs 33,655. Check out the video showing off the smartphone:

The phone has a 4.5-inch display, a Snapdragon 400 dual-core processor clocked at 1.4 GHz, Adreno 305 for the graphics, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory. Users will also have the option for microSD card expansion, if needed. For the photographers, the smartphone is equipped with an 8 megapixel shooter on the back with LED flash and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera. Keeping the smartphone alive is a 2,100mAh user-replaceable battery, which Jolla claims can give 9-10 hours of talk time and 500 hours on standby.

The most interesting thing about the phone is that the Sailfish operating system is said to be Android app compliant. Thanks to this, the smartphone will suffer no lack of apps, since users can just download and sideload all the apps they actually need.
