The ex-Nokia developers that formed Jolla to work on Sailfish OS to work on a new range of Linux-based smartphones to start where MeeGo left off, have announced their first smartphone.

News this morning is Jolla's The Movement smartphone as their first product. The phone is targeted to sell by year's end for around $500 USD. The phone is a Jolla original design with 4.5-inch display, dual-core SoC, 4G connectivity, 16GB of storage + microSD, an 8MP camera, user-replaceable battery, and will ship with Sailfish OS. While being powered by Sailfish, it will be compatible with Android applications.

While Sailfish OS is interesting, the phone's hardware for the price isn't too interesting and modern high-end smartphones already out-do this Jolla product. Those interested in more details on this phone can visit
