We’ve been working very hard all year to get the Jolla Tablet ready. We have progressed very well in many areas, but as there are still many open items remaining, we are forced to postpone the delivery start of the Jolla Tablet.
Sailfish OS still needs a lot of work and they’ve changed the screen panel to one with better color.
New shipping target for Jolla Tablet: end of July 2015
I guess this really shouldn’t be a surprise. But all the same, it’s disappointing.
I’ve seen the same thing happen with tablet after tablet. The only exception has been the iPad.
Months matter a lot in the tablet world. I’ve been watching things wither in China and can see that there’s been a big change in the market, which is why companies are trying to move towards high-end Core-M-based tablets.
But Jolla is basically making its own market with Sailfish OS, so this delay probably won’t matter much in the long run.
