Jolla, a Finnish startup company formed by ex-Nokia employees, is looking forward to launch their first tablet based on Sailfish operating system. Jolla has started a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to manufacture the tablet and have raised more than their goal of $380,000 within a day.
Jolla compares its upcoming Sailfish 2.0 tablet with iPad Mini 3, Nexus 9 and Nokia N1 and promises to deliver the same specs, if not more, at a lower price starting at USD 189. Interested buyers will need to add an extra USD 20 shipping charges. The first tablets will be shipped in May 2015.
The Jolla tablet will sport a 7.85-inch 2048×1536 pixels display at a density of 330ppi. Running on the gesture-based Sailfish 2.0 operating system, the tablet will run on a 1.8GHz quad-core (64-bit) Intel processor with 2GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage which will be expandable via microSD card.
Powered by a 4300mAh, the WiFi only Jolla tablet mounts a 5 MP rear camera at the back and a 2 MP on the front camera. It will weigh 384 grams and will come with Bluetooth, Micro-USB, GPS, accelerometer, light sensor, and proximity sensor.
The Jolla Tablet is currently available in EU, Norway, Switzerland, United States, India, China, Hong Kong, and Russia.
