Jolla, the mobile company from Finland, is the developer of open mobile operating system Sailfish OS. Our company was born in 2011, with roots in Nokia and MeeGo. We believe in openness and independence in everything we do. We believe that the mobile OS landscape needs alternatives to current dominating operating systems, and our mission is to deliver on that belief.
Our crown jewel, Sailfish OS is an independent, scalable and customizable mobile OS, which we develop and offer for various kinds of licensing customers. Sailfish OS is suitable for governmental needs, corporations, and any environment which needs a customized, privacy enhanced mobile OS solution. Sailfish OS, with its smooth user experience and scalable technology is perfect for devices ranging from smart watches to television size screens, and to IoT solutions.
The first Sailfish OS mobile product, the Jolla smartphone, was first introduced in November 2013 and has been available throughout Europe, Hong Kong SAR, China mainland, India, and Russia. In November 2014 Jolla introduced the Jolla Tablet project, and in 2016 one of India’s largest smartphone companies Intex Technologies launched the Aqua Fish smartphone running Sailfish OS. Sailfish OS is also used in the Turing phone, and it has been successfully ported to dozens of other mobile phones through our developer community. Currently Sailfish OS is the only mobile operating system offering its customers a regional licensing model. In 2016, after a thorough review of several open source based options, the Ministry of Russia publicly expressed support for Sailfish OS, which was chosen as the platform for further development.
DIT – doing it together is in our hearts. Our developer and fan communities are an integral part of the way we operate, how we develop things and move forward.
Jolla Ltd. has offices in Helsinki and Tampere, Finland and in Hong Kong.
