Jolla, founded in 2011 by ex-Nokia employees, is the developer of Sailfish, which is an independent OS based on MeeGo platform, developed by Nokia and Intel. The first smartphone on MeeGo platform came out in 2007. Nokia later in 2011 shelved the MeeGo platform and launched phones based on Windows. The first Sailfish OS mobile product, the Jolla Smartphone, was introduced in November 2013. “In our BRICS country strategy, we have been proceeding fastest in India, which is one the most important markets in the future of mobiles. We have seen a lot of interest among Indian mobile device manufacturers and operators, and they are all very keen to work with an alternative to the currently dominating mobile operating systems,” Executive Chairman of Jolla, Antti Saarnio said.
