Sailfish OS Smartphone Jolla

The Sailfish OS is a mobile-optimized operating system. This is a Linux based smartphone operating system developed by Jolla in cooperation with the Mer project and supported by the Sailfish Alliance. It is to be used in upcoming released smartphones by Jolla and other licensees.
Sailfish includes a multi-tasking user interface that Jolla intends to use to differentiate its smartphones from others and as a competitive advantage against devices that run Google's Android or Apple's iOS.

The Jolla smartphone running the Sailfish OS, which the company calls "The Other Half". The main advantage of the gesture-based Jolla smartphone is its compatibility with Android apps. Never the less Jolla phone will be compatible with “multiple streams” -- not surprising since it’s a Linux-based OS -- that can support smartphones running both ARM and x86 chips.

The phone will reportedly sell for € 399, or roughly $513, when it sees its release date “by the end of 2013.” The Jolla phone is now available to preorder. The Jolla phone will feature a 4.5-inch “high definition” display , an 8-megapixel camera and a dual-core processor. The smartphone will carry 16GB on board with a microSD expansion slot for more storage, a user replaceable battery and a 4G LTE modem. The smartphone can also reportedly recognize the color of  case -- available in many shades including orange and green -- and adapt the visual theme of the Sailfish OS to create “your other half, exactly as you want it to be.” Its the most intriguing matter that the smartphone is customizable from both a software and hardware level.
