As Jolla, the new Finnish smartphone maker unveiled today, the first production batch of its Jolla smartphone with Sailfish OS has been fully booked by consumers and selected sales channels around the world. Jolla launched its first smartphone at the #JollaLoveDay event in May. At the same time, Jolla kicked off an online pre-order campaign, which reached its first batch limit by mid-July. Online pre-orders were received from 136 countries in all. For those, who missed the first opportunity, Jolla said it's now doing its best to offer a 2nd chance later in the autumn; and recommends that everyone interested in Jolla to sign up at jolla.com to be the first to know about any new developments, such as the opening of the next pre-sales campaign.
The first Jolla is targeted to begin shipping by the end of 2013, starting in Europe. Being happy with the current business developments, Jolla also said that the Jolla phone production program is proceeding as planned and sales will start in Finland with DNA, the first operator in the world to offer Jolla smartphones.
