Just over a month ago the development team behind the Jolla Tablet launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to help manufacture the world’s first crowd sourced open source tablet.
Initially the Jolla tablet campaign aimed to raise $380,000 to manufacture the Jolla Tablet, although this figure was passed in just a few hours of the camping launching, and now the campaign has finished raising a massive $1,824,055.
During the campaign a number of stretch goals were reached and unlocked including MicroSDHC support for up to 128GB cards, together with another stretch goal set at $1.75 million that added split screen support.
“Jolla Tablet’s Sailfish operating system will be unlike anything you’ve tried before. Once you try it, you’ll never want to go back. Independent and powered by open source, change whatever you like, whenever you like.
At Jolla, we believe in your privacy and respecting our users. That’s why Sailfish OS is totally independent and has been built the way it has. It’s our company policy that we’ll never sell or share your data with anyone. There are no back doors or anything third parties could use for monitoring your activity. Together with the open source community, we’re continuing to strengthen our privacy capabilities at every opportunity.
Multitasking on Sailfish OS shows all your running apps conveniently in one single view. At a glance, you’ll see everything that’s going on, as well as easily switch between apps. You can also control Sailfish OS apps directly from the multitasking view – for example, change your music or play and pause your video stream without opening the app in full.”
