[News] First license of Sailfish OS goes to... IndiaWorth a read? Please share:
Finnish Jolla told reporters earlier in July that they are concentrating on the development and licensing of Sailfish OS. Now it's revealed that the first external manufacturer using Sailfish OS is Indian Intex Technologies.
Press release fails on such details as, for example, duration of the contract or its monetary value. But real products should be coming, as Intex plans to release Sailfish OS smartphones later this year.
The phones are using upcoming Jolla Sailfish OS 2.0 operating system, which Jolla certainly try to get licensed a lot broader. Jolla has invested in the so-called BRICS region, which comprises India, Brazil, China, South Africa and Russia in particular, where the operating system Jolla has attracted the interest of the state level.
Jolla shared their interest in licensing Sailfish OS 2.0 first time in last March during Mobile World Congress 2015 Barcelona.
