So Much For That Jolla Tablet

Jolla shifts efforts to Sailfish OS, exits smartphone hardware business

From their PDF [direct link]:

Jolla is committed to deliver the Jolla Tablet to its Indiegogo crowdfunding contributors and is working hard to start first shipments as soon as possible. “The software (Sailfish OS) part of the work is in good shape but we have been slowed down by supply issues of certain hardware components. We expect to solve this issue very soon,” Mr. Saarnio says.

The new Jolla devices company will be announced separately after the summer.

We’ve seen this before.

When Palm spun off its software from its hardware.

Although Jolla claims it will be making announcements next week at Mobile World Congress Shanghai, I wouldn’t place any bets on either part of this company being relevant or in business by year’s end.
