Jolla today announced that its Sailfish operating system and smartphone are ready to expand to more countries. The first Jolla smartphone has been available to most European countries since late 2013. Now Jolla is targeting more markets, including Russia, India, and Hong Kong. Jolla said the OS has been updated several times since its release last year, and a major update planned for March will add features and resolve performance issues. Specifically, the update will add extended landscape support, visual tweaks, camera functionalities, enhancements to the Jolla store, and general settings. Jolla plans to make available a version of the operating system that can run on certain Android devices. Jolla calls this the Sailfish OS experience, which will let Android users get a real taste of what Sailfish is all about. Jolla also plans to offer Android devices a launcher that mimics the top-layer user interface of Sailfish OS. The app will be available for download in the months ahead. Jolla also announced several new partnerships. It is working with F-Secure to improve the security of Sailfish, it is working with Tieto to make it easier for hardware makers to develop their own Sailfish devices, and it has partnered with Rovio for Angry Birds accessories for the Jolla smartphone.
