This Sailfish OS-powered slate is the world’s first crowdsourced tablet project on Indiegogo ($189 USD a piece for the first batch) and should arrive next year.

Finnish company Jolla is known for its independent operating system known as Sailfish and the smartphone loaded with it that went on sale one year ago. They announced the Jolla Tablet with a quad-core Intel Atom processor and Sailfish OS earlier this week, also starting a campaign on Indiegogo that makes it the world's first tablet crowdsourcing project

Jolla Tablet will begin to roll out in Q2 2015, but its highlights have been already revealed:

  • Processor: 1.8 GHz Intel Atom 3700 Series
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support
  • Display: 7.9-inch IPS capacitive 5-point multitouch with 2,048X1,536 pixels and 330 ppi
  • Cameras: 2 MP front, 5 MP rear
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n dual band, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with GLONASS, micro USB
  • Operating system: Sailfish 2.0
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.85 pounds; 7.99X5.39X0.33 inches

Jolla's Sailfish OS is compatible with Android apps and offers a rich set of personalization options, as well as "the best multitasking experience on the market, showing all your running apps conveniently in one single view."

This slate will retail for $249 USD, but the first batches available for early Indiegogo supporters start at $189 USD. The goal of the campaign is to reach $380,000 USD, but the sum raised already climbed above the $1,000,000 USD mark. We will get back to this tablet as soon as the Indiegogo campaign ends.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
