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

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.
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.
Updated my Aqua Fish to #SailfishOS 3.1. Thank you @JollaHQ for the awesomeness. I've seen SFOS grow during these years. Wish there were more phones running Sailfish! I'd definitely buy a new one. @Nokiamobile, can you make one? Pleeeeeease? CC: @sarvikas pic.twitter.com/R3MBd1msvD

It’s time to be pushy again with STORE advertising?
I'm curious to know how much you would be willing to pay for a brand new Sony Xperia XA2 32GB that already has Sailfish OS installed and is ready to use? Bearing in mind that there would be an additional £45ish to pay should you require the Android app support licence #SailfishOS

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.
Many new Sailfish OS users are unaware of the existence of another source of native apps: the portal OpenRepos.net and its app version: Storeman. For various reasons, over the years this alternative store has grown better and today hosts the…Read all
