Jolla Sailfish OS smartphone announced in India via Snapdeal for Rs 16499

The much talked about Jolla Sailfish smartphone which is basically an aged mid-range device with a lot of focus on style, has made its way into India finally with its unique Sailfish OS in tow. Online retailer Snapdeal has earned the right to exclusively sell the handset in the country and is offering it at a questionable price of Rs 16499.

The Jolla smartphone is made unique by its Sailfish OS which itself is based on the Nokia-developed MeeGo platform and can run a good number of Android apps. What’s interesting is that the device has been created by former Nokia employees themselves, most of whom were involved in the development of the MeeGo OS.
