Mid-August bulletin

The climax of summer has passed, and perhaps that wave of abnormal heat.
With a good number of weeks not covered, there is a lot of stuff: Let’s see what’s up.

F
(x)tec Pro1 at Froscon

It’s almost here. At Froscon, Jolla presented the Pro1 running Sailfish OS.

Also, here is the Lesner Hands-on review with the Pro 1

 

Sailfish OS is on Xperia 10

At the end it appeared. Rudi Timmermans showed a (long) Xperia 10 with Sailfish OS onboard!
It’s not clear if SF will be also Xperia 1, but looking at the price range, the Xperia 10 it’s a mid market device, like were the Xperia X and the XA2s.

Anyway that bottom 2mm border is very cool. Even Sony get the almost borderless frame style!

The Xperia 1 is so pricy, and in any case now we know that a porting on Xperia 10 is possible.

 

You can update Aqua Fish to 3.1

Probably using the trick to flash the Jolla C firmware in Aqua Fish.
After all they are different twins! Like the (sigh, gone) Aigo Tablet and the rare Jolla Tablet.

 

SDK gets a minor update

Weird conversation

 

“…Would need a store”

It’s time to be pushy again with STORE advertising?

The Phantom Menace

Google is developing a new, concept, internal alternative OS: Fuchsia OS.
It may be one of the much Google test and side project, but it could be a product to easily “satisfy” the desire for alternativity of the most advanced Android users:
a way to stop users from escaping to alternative OS and iOS, with better UI.

 

Good summer!
