Earlier today, Jolla unveiled its first tablet called the Jolla Tablet, which runs on the Sailfish OS. The Finnish startup has opted for crowdfunding via Indiegogo to develop and distribute the tablet, and it is being lapped by users. The company was able to raise nearly 92 percent of the $380,000 it is seeking in less than two hours.
At the time of filing the story, Jolla had already raised $348,498 of the $380,000 or 92 percent of the goal. The company has already sold out the first batch of 1,000 tablets to backers who had to pay $189 (Rs 11,600 approximately). It is still accepting $199 (Rs 12,300 approximately) for the second batch of 1,000 Jolla Tablets. The company will start shipping the tablets sometime next year.
To recap on the tablet’s specifications, it flaunts a 7.9-inch 2048×1536 pixels display with a density of 330ppi, and is powered by a 1.8GHz Intel quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. It also features a 5-megapixel camera, 2-megapixel front camera, 32GB internal storage, microSD card slot and 4,300mAh battery. Connectivity options on the tablet include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, and as mentioned above, it runs on Sailfish OS 2.0.
