Micromax has officially announced the successor of its popular A110 Canvas 2 smartphone. The A110Q Canvas 2 Plus was rumored for quite some time and now, the device is now available on their website.
Another interview has been done with Jolla CEO Jussi Hurmola. Here is the description of the video:
Jussi Hurmola, the CEO of Jolla, explains how they will differentiate from the existing players in the smart phone market. Jolla is a Finnish startup in the smart phone space, consisting of ex-Nokia employees. They are planning to release a device based on the MeeGo operative system during 2012.
The blogger Vesku has written a very interesting blog post on Jolla Mobile discussing what problems they might run in to.
Based on the information Jolla has published, they are going to continue the work started in MeeGo and are going to utilize Mer -core as basis for their operating system and Qt/QML as UI toolkit. They are also contributing back to the Mer -project. This is an excellent starting point. I think we demonstrated in the Nemo Mobile, that even with a relatively small team you can develop modern phone software using these technologies and existing open source components.
