Jolla Tablet and Sailfish OS 2.0: hands-on at MWC 2015 (Video)

Jolla’s tablet efforts got started back in November, as the company kicked-off the crowdfunding campaign for the first Sailfish OS tablet. The Jolla Tablet popped back on our radar in January as a new storage option was added to that effort. And while we’d heard plenty about both this hardware and Jolla’s plans for a next-gen Sailfish OS experience, so far it had just been this out-of-reach online dream. At MWC this year the Jolla Tablet becomes very much real, as we’re given our first chance to check this guy out in the flesh.

The Intel-powered tablet with its 7.85-inch display is a bit more compact than either the Nexus 9 or iPad Air 2, but it still offers a very high-res 2048 x 1536 display. And with 32GB and 64GB storage options, as well as the ability to expand upon that with a microSD card, Jolla’s doing a lot to make sure the tablet’s capably equipped.

But we already knew it sounded good; what’s it like to use? And what’s this new Sailfish OS really like? Check out our video below for your answers.
