Since Jolla is linux, it should be possible to run steam on it. Imagine a future version where we can hook up a vidock to it and use the moga game pad and run the steam app on it with a jolla desktop UI with maybe a bluetooth mouse.
So your phone would replace a full desktop and maybe your laptop. You'd just be a little underpowered with the CPU for high end games but since you are hooking up to a vidock you are fine on graphics and can always upgrade it and you are running linux with a BT mouse.
Also it seems you need to install something called android compatibility on your jolla phone for certain android apps to work.
x86 code on ARM hardware? Good luck with that.

Sailfish doesn't have many apps anyway (for now at least).

Funny how the first phone from a tiny startup can look so much better than any Android phone ever made. The UI design, graphics, design of the case, it's all miles above any Android phone I've seen. And not to even mention iOS 7, what an eyesore that is...
Also, it runs Wayland! How cool is that?
Anywho, if I could justify spending 400€ on a phone, I'd definitely get this one. I just don't use phones enough that I'd pay that much for one, but it definitely looks great, seems like Jolla can deliver what they promise.
NO. Simply NO.
