Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:40 CET under 05 - Other Mobile OS News

If you are a Pebble smartwatch owner, you should receive this update automatically, if not it might be interesting for you to know that Pebble has released another PebbleOS firmware update which brings some neat and useful enhancements. PebbleOS v1.14 is now featuring a a "Do Not Disturb" function which blocks notifications for a set period of time. That's indeed handy because so far you had to activate the Airplane Mode, for instance if you was taking a nap on weekends. And while we are talking about a nap, the alarms app also received an update which now allows to create multiple Alarms, toggle alarms on/off and edit existing alarms. Also new the the snooze alarm function which is customizable via the Pebble Alarms app.

DISTRIBUTION: Jolla sees a Sailfish OS Future on existing Android Devices
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:36 CET under 05 - Other Mobile OS News

Following Jolla's "The Other Half" Sailfish OS-based smartphone launch last week, the Finnish smartphone startup has further plans for its Sailfish OS - to reach a critical mass. As Jolla CEO Tomi Pienimäki told Finnish Talouselämä Magazine, Jolla is going to let individual users install the Sailfish OS on Android devices that they already have. In an interview, Pienimäki said "That is the plan. We are on device business and OS business. It is fairly easy to install the OS on Android devices" and continued that "there is no such culture in these parts of the world [Finland], but there are people that are installing new operating systems on their devices. In China it is mainstream."

PROCESS: Making the final Jolla "The Other Half" Order - Now Possible through Invitation E-Mails
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:54 CET under 05 - Other Mobile OS News

Have you also pre-ordered your Jolla Sailfish OS smartphone during the first wave back in spring or the second wave back in summer; and have already received last Friday's E-Mail which told you that you should receive a second E-Mail with further details soon? Great, that's what I did as well and today I received the promised second E-Mail which allowed me to complete my pre-order. Back in May, I've pre-booked and paid "The Second Half" 100 Euro campaign and I always wondered how this will continue. Beside receiving my T-Shirt (which unfortunately arrived way too late, don't hope it's an indicator for how much longer I have to wait for the phone), the campaign was said to give me a discount of 100 Euro for the phone since I already paid that amount in advance.
