Greetings from our team in Mobile World Congress Shanghai! Here we’ve just announced our first-ever Sailfish OS licensing partner Intex Technologies, who will be bringing Sailfish OS based devices to the market in India later this year. Big news for Sailfish OS, Jolla and our partners!
Here we’ve been talking a lot also about Sailfish OS 2.0. We didn’t put out any official press releases about it, but now we want to update you about it: the next software update will be something big, as we launch the biggest update in Sailfish OS history, something that we call ‘Sailfish OS 2.0’.
We also did a cool video about it, check it out:
New visually refreshed user interface
Sailfish OS 2.0 will be the 17th Sailfish OS software update from Jolla. It has lots to offer, and we’re so excited to bring it to you soon!
The biggest software update to date introduces a totally new and visually refreshed user interface, which is fast and easy to use, enhancing the flow of the OS dramatically, and making the user interface designed for seamless multitasking even more effective than before.
For our dear Sailfish OS customers, Sailfish OS 2.0 includes improved Android application compatibility and browser experience, smoother transitions throughout the OS and overall improved stability and performance. Because of these improvements the daily use of Sailfish OS should become even faster and smoother.
Empowering smartphones and tablets
The introduction of Sailfish OS 2.0 means also that Sailfish OS now empowers both tablets and smartphones. On the Jolla Tablet we can say that the new Sailfish OS 2.0 UI is award winning, already before it is officially out! In Mobile World Congress Barcelona, in March 2015 we won the Best Tablet of MWC award for the Jolla Tablet prototype.
Look out for more tablet updates soon here in our blog; we are doing our best to ship it as soon as possible.
Sailfish OS has always been a people powered platform. While maturing to Sailfish OS 2.0 we’ve listened closely to user feedback through customer polls and together.jolla.com, and worked together with our community to build the best user experience possible.
The whole Jolla team wants to thank wholeheartedly our fans, followers and community members for the support along the journey. Lots of LOVE!
When can I get it?
Sailfish OS 2.0 will be available in our next software update through our normal release process. In a few weeks our early access customers will get a first try for it, and then quickly after, every Sailfish OS user will get to experience the new smooth user interface and all other new stuff it has in store. We can’t wait to release it!
We will share more details on the update soon!
