The Jolla handset's Sailfish operating platform is based on MeeGo software, which Nokia abandoned in 2011 when it switched over to using Microsoft Corp's Windows system.
    
The 4.5-inch Estrade (540x960 pixels) display phone features an eight megapixel camera with LED flash. The phone also fosters a 2 mega-pixel front camera. It supports fast 4G Internet connections and includes Nokia's HERE maps covering 180 countries. It is compatible with some 85,000 apps by Google's Android.

The device is powered by 1.4GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor along with 1GB of RAM.
    
It has been launched in Finland on Wednesday. Jolla was founded in 2011 after Nokia laid off thousands of workers as it lost market share to rivals.

The first batch is reserved for people who already preordered the Jolla Smartphone. People, who are not on the list, will have to wait for the next batch. The Sailfish OS doesn’t only support its own apps, but also runs Android based apps.
