Jolla Tablet may gain split screen feature and 3.5G connectivity
Seeing that its recently-started Indiegogo campaign is hugely successful, Jolla today added three new stretch goals, which, if reached, will enhance the upcoming Jolla Tablet.

The first stretch goal is to reach $1,500,000 before the campaign ends (in 12 days). This will allow Jolla to add microSDHC support up to 128 GB to its tablet. The goal will almost certainly be reached, as Jolla already raised $1,292,594.

The second stretch goal ($1,750,000) will add a split screen feature to the Jolla tablet, improving its multitasking capabilities. Finally, the third goal ($2,500,000 - this one may be hard to reach) will enable Jolla to offer 3.5G connectivity on its tablet for an extra $30 over the standard price of the slate - which comes only with Wi-Fi by default.

As we previously told you, you can secure a Jolla Tablet if you contribute at least $209 to the company’s Indiegogo campaign - though you have to keep in mind that shipping is estimated to start in May 2015. The slate can be shipped to the following markets: US, Canada, the European Union, Norway, Switzerland, Russia, Australia, China, India, and Hong Kong.

Running Sailfish OS 2.0, the Jolla Tablet offers pretty nice features, including a 7.9-inch display with 1536 x 2048 pixels, quad-core 64-bit Intel Atom processor (1.8 GHz), 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, a 4300 mAh battery, 2 MP front-facing camera, and a 5 MP rear camera - all in a 7.5mm-thin body.
