Jolla started the event with a Press Conference on the hotel next to the event site, unveiling their new product Jolla Tablet running on Sailfish OS 2.0. Their campaign on Indiegogo has gatherer more than 2 million dollars, and the original goal of $380 000 was reached in just couple of hours when the campaign started on November 2014.
In the event site, Jolla stand was in the main hangar open on each day between 2-5 March at MWC Hall 1, Stand 1F40, Fira Gran Via, Fira de Barcelona, Spain. What a great people, and what a load of material to go through.

Jolla at Mobile World Congress 2013:
Already before their first phone was out, Jolla had an exhibition meeting room at MWC13. Jolla Phone was not yet ready to be introduced, that came out later on November, but Jolla introduced the first Sailfish OS SDK enabling developers to get deeper into the system and start building their first Sailfish OS apps. As this blog was launched at the same time with the phone, here are some links to my colleagues sites:
