[Edited] Order Jolla to China, Japan, USA, Australia, and South Korea

Jolla phone delivered to several countries outside Europe via Finnair PlusShop

[Edit] June 30, 2014: I found this, after tipped of this possibility on a comment thread (Thanks!): PlusShop has added, at some point after this article was published, a note to their product page:
Notes Delivery only to EU countries, Switzerland and Norway

Review Jolla Blog is truly sorry for sharing misleading information, even that the information seemed correct according to the terms of  PlusShop on the date of publish.

Original post, June 25, 2014:

Jolla phone is officially launched in sales in EU, Switzerland and Norway. More countries (Russia, India, China) are already planned for this year - but FINNAIR PLUSSHOP is already selling Jolla phones even further, additionally offering delivery to Australia, China, Japan, South Korea and U.S.

 Finnair PlusShop

FINNAIR PlusShop is owned by Finnish flying company Finnair. Manufacturers love to get their products there, as the shop is well known in Finland for quality souveniers. Many of their goods, including Jolla, are carrying "Design From Finland" logo as a proof of origin and fullfilling few other requirements regarding design and usability. Only 120 companies in Finland have this logo for all or some of their products. [edit] Finnair PlusShop operates only online. It is an open webshop for everyone, but has special membership offers for Finnair Plus members.

Price and Shipping cost

They currently offer Jolla phone for price of 349€ - the same as Jolla's own web shop. Frequent flyers can also use their plus points (gained from flying with Finnair or using services of their partners) as part of the purchase, or even for the full payment.

You don't need to be a frequent flyer, or a flyer at all, to place an order in this webshop and get your Jolla phone. However, please note that any delivery costs are added to the end price - for example 67,50€ to Sydney, Australia. Plusshop shows the delivery cost in advance before placing the order.
