For those that have been wanting to try out the Linux-based Mer-derived Qt-friendly Sailfish OS but are unable to obtain Jolla's first, expensive, and limited quantity phone, the Finnish company is porting Sailfish OS to Google's Nexus devices.

It was announced yesterday that Sailfish OS has been ported to Google's Nexus 4 phone. Jolla is additionally working on bringing Sailfish OS to the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 devices too.

News of this interesting milestone was shared on The Jolla Blog and below is a video of Sailfish OS running on the Nexus 4.
