Unboxing the Jolla phone: initial setup & first impressions (Video)

Advertisement

It’s a Jolla phone! Er … a Jolla. Our Jolla. Whatever the proper phrasing, the flagship device from Finland’s most ambitious mobile outfit has finally landed on our doorstep – and we’re here to show you what unboxing it feels like!

We’re pressed for time on this one though, folks, so we’re relying on you to help us out with our first-ever Sailfish OS review! With only three days to spend with a demo unit, we need you to tell us exactly what you want to know about Jolla Ltd., the Jolla itself, and the fresh new operating system powering it.

Normally we’d answer those questions ourselves (and we’ll try to do so in this case too) but fortunately, the company has granted us the opportunity to pose questions directly to a familiar face: Marc Dillon, co-founder of Jolla and the firm’s current head of software. We’ll be talking to Marc tomorrow morning, and bundling bits of our interview into the final review – so if you’ve got questions, pass them along down in the comments (or tweet them at us) before 10a ET, and we’ll do our best to get them answered!

In the meantime, lean back and check out the first Jolla ever to cross our desk. From its Other-Half construction to its clean new OS, this new device is quite a treat – and we can’t wait to show you what it’s like to carry one over the next 72 hours!

Can’t wait to learn more about Jolla? Check out our earlier interview with Marc Dillon, where he told us how Jolla was “something brand-new,” then click over to our first hands-on with the new Sailfish OS, from MWC 2013!
