Jolla Finds Licensing Partners for Sailfish OS
Jolla today announced that Intex Technologies has licensed Sailfish OS and put it in the Aqua Fish handset. The Aqua Fish is the first handset to run Sailfish OS outside of the phones made by Jolla itself. Intex said the phone will include Super Apps, which are accessible by swiping the home screen. These apps include the Gaana music service and Snapdeal. Intex plans to sell the Aqua Fish in India before the end of the second quarter. Jolla and Intex didn't provide any details about the hardware. Jolla also struck a deal with mi-Fone, which said it plans to bring a Sailfish OS handset to select African countries during the second quarter of the year. Last, Jolla said Fairphone is considering using Sailfish OS in the Fairphone 2. Fairphone is an ethical company that makes handsets responsibly with conflict-free minerals. Jolla is composed primarily of former Nokia employees and Sailfish OS is based on the Meego Linux platform. Jolla no longer intends to make its own hardware and is instead licensing Sailfish OS to phone makers as an alternative to Android, Tizen, iOS, Windows Phone, and others.

Palm, a California company that purchased the rights to the Palm brand from TCL, today launched a new device it calls an ultra-mobile product that "syncs with your smartphone to keep you connected but not consumed." The idea is to allow people to access their vital apps when needed, but keep them from staring at their screen all day — particularly when they are out and about. The device is tiny and features an aluminum chassis with Gorilla Glass panels front and back.
