Jolla finally launched its Sailfish X for the Sony Xperia X smartphone

Let us show some love for Jolla, a company that arose from the MeeGo OS team. If you thought that Jolla is doing nothing, you were partially wrong. It has been a long time since Jolla presented any new hardware, but their Sailfish OS is spreading to the BRICS countries. Several manufacturers have accepted Sailfish as OS of choice for their smartphones (Intex, Fairphone, TRI) but the relationship didn’t last long. Now Jolla signed a deal with Sony to bring Sailfish X, or Sailfish OS for the Sony Xperia X devices. Jolla has finally finished this project and Sailfish X is ready for you to buy it and install it on Sony Xperia X device.

Actually, some of the sensors are still not working, but that is just for the first release. Knowing Jolla, they will make it work with the next update. For downloading it you’ll need to spend €49.90 and have Linux based PC to install it. Jolla has made it difficult for PC dummies to take the chance and use Sailfish OS, but they made very good instructions on how to install the OS on the phone. But, you need to know that this can be done only on the Sony Xperia X device, so you have to own it or buy it from these stores:

Check out the demo of the Sailfish X on the Sony Xperia X phone.

If you are a Jolla fan and now with Linux, maybe this could be something for you. Anyway, I think that Jolla should make the installation process even simpler and offer its Sailfish OS to more models. Maybe that way Sailfish will spread a bit more.
