Speculations: More about Jolla coming soon
Something new can be expected soon from Jolla, the freshly unveiled Finnish smartphone company.
A week ago I wrote about the startup continuing Nokia’s work with MeeGo operating system. The startup got lot of attention from the media following mobile media and the fans on MeeGo and Maemo operating systems. Jolla even has six times the followers on Twitter than the Tizen project which is also a descendant of Maemo.
At Friday, before leaving for the weekend’s activities, Jolla’s tweeter sent an intriguing and mysterious tweet. The tweet let’s us expect something more to be unveiled by the company at monday.
Not much is known about Jolla by outsiders so my bet is they will give us some more information about the company. We don’t know anything about the investors behind the company. Or when exactly their first phone is coming out. Or what qualities the phone has. There’s just so much we don’t know yet.
This brings me to the conclusion that Jolla will publish their website at Monday. Until now they have Twitter and LinkedIn accounts where they have shared some basic information about the company. But since every self-respecting company has a website nowadays, I bet that’s what the Friday’s tweet referred to.
The design and specs of Jolla’s first phone will be published later this year and the investors will come out of the shadows when they see fit. If at all.
Or I might be totally wrong and nothing happens. We’ll see that tomorrow.
UPDATE: We didn’t get the website. Instead Jolla teamed up D.Phone group which is Chinas largest mobile phone retail chain. So Jolla’s upcoming phone will see its way into at least 2000 stores all over China. D.Phone expects to get a new fresh-feeling player in Crina’s mobile markets.
