The first Jolla Tablet powered by Sailfish OS is now available to pre-order, nine months after the device made its debut on Indiegogo. A “limited” number of devices are currently available to those in select markets, and prices start at €267 (approx. $301).
Built by Finnish startup Jolla, the Jolla Tablet is powered by a quad-core Intel processor clocked at 1.8GHz, 2GB of RAM, and either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. It also has a 5-megapixel camera on its back, a 2-megapixel camera on its front, and a 7.85-inch display with 2048×1536 resolution.
Despite its all-new Sailfish OS operating system, which is “unlike anything you’ve tried before,” Jolla Tablet can run Android apps alongside native apps downloaded from the Jolla Store. The tablet’s software is derived from MeeGo, the platform that was briefly used by Nokia for its N9 smartphone.
Jolla Tablet first hit Indiegogo for crowdsource funding back in November, and in just two days, it raised $1.2 million. Jolla then added an improved model with more storage and a bigger battery in January.
Both the 32GB and 64GB models are available to pre-order from Jolla’s online store via the source link below, but only limited numbers are available to customers in EU, Norway, Switzerland, United States, Canada, Australia, India, and Hong Kong — so you’ll have to act fast if you want one.
The devices are priced at €267 (approx. $301) and €299 (approx. $337) respectively, but bear in mind that these prices include tax at 24%, which will be recalculated at checkout depending on your shipping country.
