Big announcement for fans who have been waiting for a physical QWERTY Jolla keyboard. Dirk van Leersum (designer of various TheOtherHalfs including first TOH keyboard) posted on Twitter that his current project will be presented on Kickstarter.com within the next days. Kickstarter.com is a fantastic crowdfunding platform created to bring projects to life which are looking for a minimum funding goal.
It certainly has been a long wait for the 9th update which migrates Sailfish OS to Qt5.2 and therefore took (and still takes) a lot of internal testing at Jolla. The official update release shouldn't be far away, but Jolla went ahead and let willing users test the latest OS improvements. The pre-release also comes in handy for developers who are given a change to adjust their applications to the new Qt5.2 developer framework.
On July 31, Jolla announced their new deal with telecom operator 3 in Hong Kong. The phone will be available from August 12. To celebrate the news Jolla gives away an unique VIP package including a special box, Jolla phone and all 4 official TOH covers.
A while ago Jolla users started to tweet photos taken with their Jolla (or with their Jolla in the picture) from all around the world. Now that it is summer them and people tend travel around a lot we get to see some nice shots from around the world.
In case you are a Twitter user as well, please help to make this photo collection even bigger.
