Jolla signs up India’s Intex as first Sailfish OS licensee

Posted by:

Jolla, the Finnish developer of an Android alternative, has signed Indian smartphone vendor Intex Technologies as the first licensee for its Sailfish OS.

The company also announced Thursday at the Mobile World Congress in Shanghai that its new Sailfish OS 2.0 is now available for licensing with a scalable 4G LTE reference platform.

Jolla is talking to a number of potential partners but the first licensee so far is Intex, which will aim to make an affordable phone at a price around rupees 10,000 (US$158), company spokesman Juhani Lassila said Thursday.

Intex plans to announce Sailfish-based products later in the year. The two companies are also working on building an ecosystem for Indian users, including by integrating Snapdeal, a top Indian online marketplace, and Times Internet, a content portal, in a prominent location in the user interface of the operating system. The new version of the OS has a PartnerSpace, a premium location directly in the OS for various local services, Jolla said.
