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.

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

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

This morning the latest #SailfishOS #SDK was released, version 2.2, with a new QtCreator, new help content, new API support, a bunch of bug fixes and…. drumroll… the new CLI interface. For Linux, Mac & Windows: https://t.co/0cdtgfrxMY pic.twitter.com/KKJBz8dKs6

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.

One of the odd thing on Android phones is that the families of smartphones are redesigned almost completely every year, giving the feeling that on a stylistic level the manufacturers do not have a clear vision, but are betting on…Read all
We’re in mid-June and the time is ripe for a new bulletin! Usually May and especially June are “hot” months for Sailfish OS, before the quiet summer. Furthermore, the Covid-19 epidemic seems to be ended and Europe is getting ready…Read all
Here is the time for another bulletin. I called it “phase 2” because Europe is now talking about the next phase after the covid-19 outbreak last month. Now tracking contacts is the issue! Also, Jolla dropped a new update this…Read all
