There are very few brands, which I think make a genuine difference.

Years ago, Nokia was one of those brands. Then things went wrong when they were taken over :(Jolla-Sailfish

I used to be the guy in the office who had an N9 (running MeeGo), people used to think it was a Windows phone sigh. Nobody quite got it, but I didn’t really care.

I got it, that was the main thing :)

Three years ago, I saw the Jolla Sailfish set sail (quite literally). It was the next stage of the MeeGo, and that really mattered to me - or so I thought.

I then went and got an Android phone. Great phone, it amazingly stable, has all the apps I need. But it doesn’t have the excellent swipe interface of the N9, and some of the menus are inconsistent, and hidden away.

Youtube recommended the Jolla tablet The open platform, the passionate community, the swipe interface. For me, this is what it’s all about.

So it looks like I will be getting a Jolla in the near future. Yay.
