Re: [DEVEL] Saera: Siri clone for Maemo5, Harmattan and Sailfish OS

Hi,

Not sure how useful this is (or whether you know about it already), but figured I'd point it out just in case.

Re: Sailfish / Pebble users' club

Amazfit Bip.

No, I haven't just tripped over and landed nose first on my keyboard, but thanks for asking. It's a new kinda pebble-alike from Xiaomi and it really is called Amazfit Bip.

Re: 2.1.1/Jämsänjoki EA

Anecdata: I had call recorder installed (and presumably running) when I did one of the recent updates (maybe 2.1.1 early access?) on a Jolla 1 because I didn't check the release notes, and they'd...

Re: Gemini PDA (the return of the Psion Series 5MX)

It would be helpful to know if the battery is still supposed to be removable (that's a big thing for me...).

Hoping someone who can comment on the Indigogo page asks the question. If you're a...

Re: Sailfish / Pebble users' club

Here is someone working on getting the Pebble to talk to Nuance / Dragon's servers.

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Speculation alert: (hell, what else are we doing in this thread? ;)

Their business model isn't selling the OS to the end user. Even if they are hoping to get into that eventually (who wouldn't...

Re: [Announce] Aigo x86 Tablet 16GB with SailfishOS

I'm not sure that's true [edit: I suppose I should say I'm not sure it's as simple as that] - I get really good battery life on my Jolla 1 (much better than approximately equivalent Android devices),...

Well, colour me surprised, and apologies for previous scepticism. I'm guessing you won't be making any more announcements on April the 1st :)

If you make another iteration of it with a swappable...

Re: [Pre-Announce] Revival of Jolla Tablet

He states his place of residence as London / Shanghai, so I don't believe for a second he isn't aware of April Fools' day. On that basis:

Lol. This is hilarious. In a slightly brutal way.

Re: 2.1.0/Iijoki EA

Jolla 1, Sailfish 2.1.0.10. Just did the update, so not up for long, not sure how useful that is to you. Does it deteriorate over time?

I don't think you understand how collecting things works.

Re: Sailfish OS on Sony Xperia (official)

So one thing I'm confused about (and I'm not that technically minded, so this might be a stupid question).

Are they going to be using libhybris to do this? Seems to me if they've got an agreement...

Not even always the chipmaker's decision, either... God only knows how many people's IP is sublicensed and tied up in a little piece of silicon.

That's true enough, but in closed-source land it's a given, basically (unless you fancy reverse engineering or writing from scratch).

At least on Linux there's a *reasonable expectation* that if...

Re: Gpd win

The eMMC module will be Samsung or Toshiba, according to the comments on the indiegogo (I think that again accords with the Win, but I can't for the life of me remember where I read that).
