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.
