Jolla has delivered on their teased new device as the "Jolla Tablet" as an exciting tablet running Sailfish OS 2.0.

When announcing the Jolla Tablet this morning -- which will be available in the United States among other countries -- it was to be crowd-funded. The crowd-funding goal was $380k USD and within a few hours that goal was quickly surpassed. As of writing, more than $480k has been raised so far today for the Jolla Tablet.

The Jolla Tablet features a 64-bit 1.8GHz quad-core Atom SoC, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage plus an SD slot, 7.85 inch 2048 x 1536 display, 5MP rear camera + 2MP front camera, WiFI, 4300mAh, and is priced from $189. The specs aren't too far off from the just announced Nokia N1 tablet.


The tablet hardware is spec'ed nice, the tablet itself looks to be built well, and running Sailfish OS 2.0 shall be great. The Jolla Tablet is expected to begin shipping in May.
