    The Hardware Adoption Kit should be around the corner, too.

    Should make it easy to make a Sailfish OS port for everything that has a CM 10.2 rom.

    So is Sailfish on the Nexus on feature partiy with Sailfish on Jolla phones, or are there features that are only supported on Jolla phones?

    You can't run any Android apps on SailfishOS on the N4, because that requires AlienDalivk which Jolla licensed from MyriadGroup from the Jolla Phoe. I wonder why nobody ever came up with an open implemetation of what AlienDalivk does.

    That sounds interesting.

    Someone with decent Finish language skills to help through the original interview ?
    Other sources about this ?

    I'm considering upgrading my phone soon-ish, I'm definitely interested in Jolla phones.
    I like the whole full GNU/linux + support for Android apps + support for QT apps + support for HTML5 apps, and I like the "other half" concept - seems one of the last way to be sure to get a real hardware keyboard, a requirement for guys with huge hands like me (girls like them. tiny phone touch screens, not so much...)

    Actually, I managed to find an english translation or the interview myself.

    Sound interesting, probably next year.
