- Jolla Tablet project has caused 1.7M USD loss, as most of the crowdfunded money has been needed for software development
- The main cause for the current financial issues are not the delays in the Tablet campaign, but the fact that the world hasn’t yet found Sailfish OS as an option, and Jolla’s funding in general
- Currently, getting 10M USD of investments for December seems to be needed for Jolla to recover
- “We are also analyzing different alternatives to solve the Tablet project and compensate to our customers for the late or missing deliveries”, says Saarnio
