Sigh..
First releasing their phone in India through a relatively less popular ecom site. Then the delay of jolla tablet. I hope Jolla people will realize that they are dealing with a populace blessed with very short term memory when it comes to technology products, and very unforgiving too. Otherwise I am thrilled to see high quality alternative mobile products are coming up.
