Re: Zipper (Turn your smartphone into a blockchain powerhouse)

I've had very limited experience with crypto currencies and remain unconvinced. I enabled payment by bitcoin a few years back and all I got was 'people' wanting to host awful porn or stolen software...

Re: SailfishOS on Sony Z3 Compact Tablet

Sony seem to have given up with tablets as for that matter have most of the manufacturers making higher end Android tablets. My z3c tablet is still in use almost daily and when I've occasionally...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

You can't remove SwiftKey but you can disable it or just install another keyboard such as Google's gboard or the Hackers Keyboard which has no predictive typing. I'm sure there's a gazillion other...

Re: Tizen United States Launch!

But which dumb phone?

I'm finding it really hard to find something that has 3g (has to as many carriers are 3g+ only) and isn't designed for the elderly.

Re: [Pre-Announce] Revival of Jolla Tablet

Call it anything you like. Just don't put the name on the hardware, especially not on the front. Also would rather not have the sailfish and Intel logos.

Re: [Pre-Announce] Revival of Jolla Tablet

How about just leaving the name and logos off?

The name is pretty awful. It sounds like a KIRF brand.

Re: 2.1.0/Iijoki EA

CalDAV not working was why I stopped using my Jolla.

The thing is, I think they've mentioned 'CalDAV fixes' in almost every single release and in every single release it's not worked at all with...

Re: Sailfish OS on Sony Xperia (official)

Apparently this is because HP have a US patent on power buttons that are also fingerprint readers.

Re: Sailfish OS on Sony Xperia (official)

Not likely. It's Mediatek based and so far all the devices on the Sony Open Devices program have been Qualcomm Snapdragon based.

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

Nope. I definitely meant self-facilitating media node.

Though of course you'd be using a Wasp T12 Speechtool, not a Gemini PDA, if you wanted to be totally Mexico.

Nope. And if you want to keep their waterproof rating then if you do replace the battery you've got to make sure it's all sealed up again.

From the Z3 on they even have a service test that does a...

Re: Jolla at MWC 2017

I have an XA, bought as a spare while my Z1 Compact was in for repair.

The XA has a number of fatal flaws.

Re: [Brainstorm][Maybe the real one?] Maemo Community Device

Just chipping in to echo a +1 for doing an Android device to pick up sales from people who want an Android device with a keyboard.

On top of that it may be then viable to have other OSs ported.

Re: Nokia to return to the smartphone market in 2017

In that it's the only one I've found that has an acceptable mix of features and apps I need, decent relatively inexpensive hardware versus the pain of an ugly UI.

Yep, settling. If we had more...

Re: Nokia to return to the smartphone market in 2017

Don't get me wrong, I have outright disdain for Android too. Unfortunately it's the only workable OS just now.

Not sure how you work that out. I would think the majority of people have an Android or iOS phone for practicality reasons. Plus if the new Nokia devices are well designed then they'd beer possible...

Re: Sailfish OS on Android tablet as alternative to Jolla Tablet.

IME the 2012 Nexus 7s were problematic. I had three. The first (32GB wifi model) suffered massive slow downs which got worse over time. A factory reset and restore would fix it for a while. It's not...

Re: Russian Open Mobile development based on SFOS

Sigh. So, it'll be two years to the next device which will be a fallout from a Russian government vanity project.

Can we have Nokia back in charge please?

Re: Best way getting into Sailfish OS?

If you need calendar syncing then iCloud CalDAV sync still works with the n9 but doesn't with SailfishOS. CalDAV is still a bag of hurt on Sailfish.

Thanks everyone.

Halftux's suggestion gets a terminal up but as elros34 noted, you've got to also stop osso-startup-wizard from starting as it grabs keyboard focus.
