Jolla, a small Finnish company formed by ex-Nokia employees, today offered a first look at its forthcoming smartphone platform called Sailfish. Sailfish is based on Nokia's discarded MeeGo platform and offers a modern, touch-based user interface. According to a short video of the UI, it uses cards and swiping gestures not unlike Palm's webOS to handle the home screen, apps, and multitasking. Jolla also announced that ST-Ericsson has agreed to make chips for Sailfish-based phones, and the Finnish carrier DNA has agreed to sell Sailfish-based phones when they are ready. Jolla has so far only committed to bringing devices to market during the second quarter of 2013.
