Jolla Tablet will be available in more markets than initially planned
As we told you last week, Finnish company Jolla has a Sailfish OS-based tablet that will be released next year. The production of the slate - called Jolla Tablet - will be possible thanks to a very successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign (which raised way more than the initial goal: right now, contributions are totaling a whopping $1,253,797).

At first, Jolla said that its tablet would be available only to customers in the US, the European Union, Norway, Switzerland, Russia, China, Hong Kong, and India. However, following fan feedback, Jolla decided to add two more markets to the list: Canada and Australia.

You can order a Jolla Tablet by contributing at least $209 to the Indiegogo campaign (at the source link below). Jolla estimates that it will ship the device in May 2015.

The Jolla Tablet weighs 384 grams, it’s 7.5mm-thin, and sports a 7.9-inch IPS display with 1536 x 2048 pixels and a 330 ppi density. Other features include a 5 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a 4300 mAh battery. The slate is powered by a quad-core, 1.8 GHz 64-bit Intel Atom processor. Do you plan to get one?

That is good news. Hoping they make a splash.

Rather pay the extra $40 for proper Android and Nokia, especially since that is a real product and this is an Indiegogo campaign, therefore there is no guarantee I will get the product.

I agree I would prefer the N1. Makes you wonder why this is going to expand so much to that many countries up front and N1 is limited to China mainly upfront. I hope Americans don't have to wait to long. I really want the N1.
