Sailfish 3 - The next generation of the independent mobile operating system

From Nokia’s MeeGo to Sailfish 3 – what a journey!

We’ve come a long way. Starting from the Nokia and MeeGo era, to developing Jolla devices, all the way to our  global licensing strategy. It’s been a journey of many ups and downs, moments of celebration, and several not so pleasant times as well. 

Independent Sailfish OS has been and is the central part in everything we do. When we started in the early 2010s, it seemed like the mobile OS market was not only a duel. Many players fought to make it, but didn’t succeed. Today the reality is that Sailfish OS is the only alternative operating system for mobile devices on the market.

Our key mission from day one has been to develop Sailfish OS, together with our vigorous community and customers, to be a valid option for various use cases. Our  focus is in licensing the OS to be used in governmental and corporate environments, and Sailfish OS is already used to build local mobile ecosystems in Latin America, Russia, and China. 

We are proud to be based on open source software, maintain focus on privacy and security, and having extended the OS support to currently over a dozen mobile devices.  

This year we are reaching yet another milestone, as we introduce Sailfish 3.

 

REGIONAL LICENSING

Sailfish OS is now used to build regional mobile solutions in Latin America, Russia, and China. For Sailfish 3 we are providing full support for regional infrastructures including steady releases & OS upgrades, services to establish independent R&D centers, local hosting, training, and a flexible feature set to support specific customer needs.

SUPPORT FOR A VARIETY OF DEVICES

Sailfish OS is officially supported now on over a dozen mobile devices, and even more through the Sailfish community. Support extends several form factors including feature phones, wearables, tablets, corporate solutions, and a range of smartphones.

INDEPENDENT & SECURE

With Sailfish OS you are in control of your own data and solutions, not the big corporations. Sailfish 3 will have extended security features and options, taking the level of independence to the next level.

PLATFORM FOR INNOVATIVE SERVICES

Sailfish OS offers a powerful platform for various consumer and corporate solutions. Among these are a tailored solution for Russian Post, and a mobile solution for blockchain.
