Jolla, developer of the Sailfish operating system, today said the platform is now available to owners of Sony Xperia X devices. Jolla first announced this effort in February. Jolla put Sony's Open Device program to work in order to make this happen. The Sailfish-enabled Xperia X is meant to serve mostly as a developer platform, though Jolla says the platform will also be available to fans. The Xperia X is a modern handset that's more powerful than the aging Jolla C device, allowing developers and enthusiasts to make use of newer technology in their projects. People interested in Sailfish will need their own Xperia X handset. Jolla is offering Sailfish as a download across the EU for 50 Euro. Developers and fans alike will be responsible for installing the OS on their hardware. Jolla was formed by former Nokia employees who resurrected bits and pieces of the defunct Moblin and Maemo Linux platforms.
