Sony calls in Kernel developers to support Linux  

Additional to Linux IoT solutions, these awesome steps Sony is taking will also enable building Sailfish OS for Sony XPeria models in much larger scale than already done. In the best case all the models will run on a same Linux kernel. The builds are of course not limited to Sailfish OS only, for example AOSP based mobile operating systems will benefit too.

Jolla Tablets in China

Jolla tried to deliver more tablets, now sold by others on Taobao  

After Jolla's financial situation was partially resolved in December 2015 they did their best to deliver more slates to the Jolla Tablet campaign participants on Indiegogo. Jolla got 540 more, missed 400 slates already sold to others, and had to promise almost 10 000 backers a refund in two portions. Juhani Lassila from Jolla was very transparent on the China situation when I asked about it.
