Jolla updates Sailfish OS: announces partnerships with Intex, Snapdeal and Times Internet
Finnish mobile company and OS developer Jolla has announced that Intex Technologies will be the world’s first licensed partner for their open mobile operating system, Sailfish. Intex will be releasing products with Jolla’s upgraded OS later in 2015.
In addition to pairing up with Intex, Jolla also announced that it was partnering up with media house Times Internet and Snapdeal in an effort to create a regional mobile ecosystem under the moniker Sailfish India.
This announcement was made at the Mobile World Congress currently taking place in Shanghai, China.
Jolla also released Sailfish 2.0 with a completely revamped user interface, improved Android compatibility, stability and performance.
As part of the improvements in Sailfish 2.0 Jolla has offered PartnerSpace, a unique part of its OS, that aims to make it easier for partners to reach customers. These partnerships aim to help consumers have better choices, more options in terms of smart phones and ultimately help local businesses and retailers.
