Jolla Introduces Its First Sailfish Smartphone
Jolla today announced its first device, a smartphone called the Jolla. Jolla is based in Finland and took over the remnants of Nokia's Meego operating system. It has been working to create a new, gesture-based operating system based on Meego called Sailfish. The smartphone announced today is the fruit of its labors. The Jolla device features a 4.5-inch HD display, a dual-core processor, support for LTE 4G networks, an 8-megapixel autofocus camera, and will include a user-replaceable battery. The Jolla also features exchangeable shells, which allow owners to customize the appearance of their device. Last, the Jolla's Sailfish operating system will be able to run Android applications. Jolla said the device, which costs 399 Euros, will ship by the end of the year.

As a developer I'm really happy to know that there are emerging platforms (environments) that are compatible with what we currently have, at least to a certain point, and they offer a completely different experience to the final user.
Not enough information
I love my N900, which runs on Maemo, a predecessor of the Sailfish OS so I'm interested but Band IV AWS WCDMA has to be covered to help me since I am on T-Mobile in a smaller market.
