Helsinki – May 20, 2013. The Jolla community around the world is today celebrating #JollaLoveDay with the theme “I am the Other Half”. In the main event in Helsinki, the company introduced its first Jolla device. Jolla also launched its pre-order and co-creation campaign #Jolla2gether targeted at Jolla friends around the world.
“This is a moment we have been eagerly waiting for, and we are proud to show the progress of this journey so far. We are introducing the first Jolla, which will change the way people interact with their devices. Jolla adapts to what you need, what you feel, what you want - just how you like it,” says Tomi Pienimäki, CEO of Jolla.
Unite the halves - create your Jolla
The unique Jolla design was inspired by the inner structure of the device, and it features timeless sleek form and pure lines, with a warm touch. Design features two layers which form the two halves of Jolla. To create a distinctive design, we focused on the finish of selected materials and their surface treatment. At the core of Jolla is Sailfish, a mobile-optimized OS that has the flexibility of a unique, open platform.
The first Jolla features an ample 4.5" Estrade that maximizes the use and efficiency of the mobile screen and brings the great gesture-based use of Sailfish alive in a totally new way. It is the optimum stage for your applications, including those for Android, integrating social media and the world's most powerful multitasking in a great way.
The Jolla has a solid and versatile feature set with powerful dual core processing power, the flexibility of 16GB + microSD memory configuration, an 8 megapixel camera and 4G capability*). All this comes in a perfectly balanced package, making Jolla a strong candidate in the mid-to-high range device category and providing a great differentiation opportunity in the mobile industry.
The product also introduces a previously unseen combination of hardware and software functionality, the Other Half, only featured in Jolla. When the Other Half is attached to Jolla, it becomes alive and unique. It instantly adapts the whole ambience and functionalities of Jolla - such as colors, fonts, tones, profiles, applications. This is a perfect couple that once united, create the soul and experience of this unique device, your Jolla.
