Re: Do people in your country talk openly of their salaries?

In Austria it would be considered very impolite to ask unless you're close friends. I remember how shocked I was when I came to Switzerland for the first time and the question about my income came up...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

I looked for the exact link but didn't find it, but IIRC James commented on blog.jolla.com that it's most likely we'll have to wait until 2018.

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

It's very unlikely, but just as a reminder: In 2014 they released Vaarainjärvi on Dec 18th. So... never say never. :)

Re: New: Jolla/Sailfish in Latin America

Would make sense to have a ref design close to the Xperia X... This way, the whole work on the Xperia port would also serve a commercial purpose.

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

I share your concerns about SailfishOS as a whole not being redistributable.

However, I never considered anonymity the main selling point. It might be for you, personally, but each of us is...

Re: [Live] Youyota 2-in-1 Tablet

Where did you get that from? Any secret sources? (It might have been of course, but that's either some secret information from Jolla - or speculation.)

I'd say that's highly unlikely because the...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Yes, sure, it might make sense for Jolla (although not much, I guess) if it really works.

But I really wonder if anybody will pay in advance after the tabletgate and in a situation where paying in...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Dear lazyweb, have they ever explained why they start "selling" it before there's a chance to download it? I mean... why would anybody pay on Sept. 27th if I can as well pay on Oct 11th?

Re: [Live] Youyota 2-in-1 Tablet

That they don't mention it at all (blog, press release) is incredible. Yes, it's not a Jolla product, but the Sony Xperia isn't either. If it runs an officially licensed SailfishOS, they should...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

IIRC, cbeta was created 2014/2015. None of those people ever shared anything - at least not officially as cbeta members. Also, one recent Jolla post (can't remember which one) indicated that having a...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Not quite. On my Jolla, I see which OS Version is about to be installed. On this Xperia it's just download after download and I don't have the slightest idea if it's a new version each time or if I'm...

Re: [Live] Youyota 2-in-1 Tablet

It might help to fix the screen brightness (it's far too brightt even at the lowest settings). So one change might fix two issues.

The whole "Bluetooth keyboard layouts with SailfishOS"-topic should be investigated by clever users.

Quite on the contrary, James Noori wrote in one of his comments that the the price of the OS image wil be totally independent of the refund.
