Re: Impressive success for Jolla's tablet
nasimson, 

Not all the crowdfunding campaigns are successful. I don't know what you mean by the amounts started in reverse. :/ 

The amount is one million three hundred thousand at the moment and there are still twelve days left. Impressive.

Crowdfunding support is impressive. Are the amounts stated in reverse? Or am I missing something here?

Impressive success for Jolla's tablet
Very impressive. Jolla's crowdfounding campaign was launched on Nov 19 (yesterday morning); this morning, in less than 24 hours, it has raised $901,358 (and counting) of the $380,000 goal. 
 
There are 20 days left to raise even more. This means Jolla has enough support to start rolling the project.

Nokia's N1 and Jolla's tablet launched at Slush in Helsinki
Both Nokia's N1 (Android OS) (Nokia's N1 has nothing to do with Microsoft, in case you wonder) and Jolla's tablet (Sailfish OS) were announced on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Slush conference in Helsinki. Jolla had a prototype on display and Nokia had demos of the two models of its new N1, which look pretty cool.

I was impressed by the lightness of the N1 and nice design. Being able to search for your apps by imputting a handwritting gesture of the first letter of the app you want to find is also cool. 

Marc Dillon presented the Jolla tablet in his usual inspiring and motovational way. The "people powered" Jolla's tablet announcemnet was received very well by the excited crowd at Slush. Many have already expressed their willigness to support Jolla's tablet, which was one of the highlights at the conference. 

So, two new Finnish tablets are joining the tablet market.

Re: Does the world need another mobile OS
nasimson, 

You just need to accept that Sailfish is now part of the OSs. By now, it has been running on Jolla smartphones and now runs on the recently launched Jolla tablet, which looks pretty. 

And yes, the world needed another mobile OS. Sailfish is quite different to the ones already on the market and it's growing fast.

Does the world need another mobile OS? Fairfox OS and now SailFish! Earlier we had seen Samsung's Bada and Nokia's Symbian failed miserably. When the two BIG giants iOS and Android are very popular, very successful and very well stablished, there remains little space for any new mobile OS.
