Jolla has exclusively partnered with e-commerce website Snapdeal for this launch.

The company has built its own operating system Sailfish which will provide users alternative to Android, Windows, Blackberry and Apple's iOS.

Jolla’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.

Jolla was founded in 2011 after Nokia laid off thousands of workers as it lost market share to rivals.

Currently Jolla smartphones are available for orders online at its web shop at the price of Euro 399 to all European Union countries, Switzerland and Norway.

According to CMR's India Mobile Handsets Q3 Market Review, India registered 62.9 million mobile handset shipments for the period July-September, 2013.
