Second iteration of the Jolla Sailfish tablet goes up on Indiegogo

Crowd funded projects always strike a chord with the public. And when Finnish manufacturer Jolla took the support of Indiegogo for its Sailfish OS tablet, they managed to take us all by surprise. It was a massive success for the company and managed to grab a lot of eyeballs at the time. And now, barely two months after its announcement, the manufacturer has listed a new version of the tablet on Indiegogo again, this time with double the storage and slightly improved battery capacity as well.

Users will be offered 64GB of internal storage with this model which can also take microSD cards of up to 128GB. The battery has been bumped to 4,450 mAh while the predecessor had a 4,300 mAh unit. The display is unchanged at 7.9-inches with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 which is exactly the same as the third gen Apple iPad Mini. There’s a 1.8 GHz 64-bit Intel processor on board, just like the first version.

The tablet seemingly has some microSDXC card related limitations. Jolla says – “Due to Microsoft’s licensing limitation, cards over 32GB that are formatted in Jolla Tablet will not be readable by Windows computers or devices that advertise microSDXC support (cameras/phones/tablets)”.

The new Jolla Tablet has been priced at $249 which is about Rs 15,400. Jolla mentions that the pricing outside Indiegogo will be nearly $300, so you stand to save a lot by pledging support through the crowd funding site. The tablet will begin shipping to customers by May 2015 which means there’s still some waiting left to do.

The device is running on Sailfish OS 2.0, which is an upgraded version of the OS that we saw on the Jolla Phone initially. The OS is capable of running Android apps, which makes this a very attractive tablet to get.

Jolla is offering unique bundles of the tablet and smartphone with discounted prices, which might be worth a look if you’re interested in investing in the Sailfish ecosystem.
