These specs are quite similar to the Nokia N1 tablet, announced yesterday. But the differentiating factor between the two tablets is the operating system. Where the N1 runs on Android, the Jolla Tablet runs on Sailfish OS. The OS supports gesture based controls for navigation, and customizable interface. Like the smartphone, the tablet too is big on multi-tasking with the ability to run multiple apps simultaneously. Sailfish operating system is based on Linux, and supports Android apps. While there is no Google Play Store, users can download Android apps via other third-party app stores including Yandex and Aptoide Store.
Connectivity options on the tablet include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS, and as mentioned above, it runs on Sailfish OS 2.0. In terms of size, the tablet sports dimensions of 203x137x8.3mm, and weighs 384 grams.
Jolla is turning to Indigogo for $380,000 in funding to develop and distribute the Jolla Tablet. The tablet will be available for the first 1,000 backers for $189 (Rs 11,600 approximately), while the next 1,000 backers will be able to buy the tablet for $199 (Rs 12,300 approximately).
