It seems like more good news are coming to Jolla after last week’s news about splitting up the company to focus on hardware and software separately. Apart from announcing its newest operating system called Sailfish OS 2.0, Jolla has also found its first licensing partner. In line with this, Intex Technologies has decided to develop its own mobile ecosystem and call this Sailfish India.
Together with their partners, Intex hopes this move will be welcomed and will turn into a huge name for the Indian market. As of this writing, Intex is the second largest phone manufacturer in India. According to their release:
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!
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.
Sailfish OS 2.0 introduces its next-generation user experience, new features and improved performance. Jolla is rolling out the update to Jolla smartphone owners in July – August 2015, and Sailfish OS 2.0 will ship with Jolla Tablet. Sailfish OS is the open and independent mobile operating system.
The first Sailfish devices are slated to be released in the later part of this year. By then, Sailfish 2.0 may also be pre-installed on Jolla tablets.
