MWC 2017 is just around the corner, taking place in Barcelona from 27th February to 2nd March, and this year Jolla is again taking part in MWC to spread the word of Sailfish OS.

Both official websites https://jolla.com/ and https://sailfishos.org/ already got a new design: https://twitter.com/JollaHQ/status/834774637061996544

The blog post 'Meet Jolla in Mobile World Congress 2017' mentions the following

This year’s Mobile World Congress is particularly important to us, since we want to showcase our company’s new strategy in a big scale, and convince potential new partners, and the industry of our new path and potential.

We are working tightly together with our licensing partners at the event, and hope to make some positive noise with our new partnership announcements.
Previously Jolla already hinted to release a new community device and Jolla's CEO mentions in the blog post 'Letter from Jolla CEO: a strong Sailfish year ahead of us!' that after the deal with Rushia Jolla is also planning to expand to other BRICS countries like China, Latin America and Africa.

Sami Pienimäki also writes the following

We’re planning for further Sailfish community devices and programs to empower the community and all Jolla & Sailfish fans.

Stay tuned, we hope to announce something exciting for you already in Mobile World Congress in a few weeks.

So what do you expect Jolla to present at MWC 2017?
Are we actually going to see a great new hardware partner releasing a high-quality Sailfish OS powerd device?

At this point, any device with sailfish OTB would do. Because evrything else didn't do much. Intex was/is a bust, that russian phone is lost in translation and turing was never there to begin with.

this translation is just....... well, lost.
Unlike iOS and Android, this platform stores the user's personal data in the smartphone and transmit it to foreign servers.
Today the system is officially installed on multiple devices: Jolla Phone, Jolla C, Oysters SF and Ermak weapons of mass destruction
now, I'm not sure if I should support them anymore

I've seen the 'weapons of mass destruction' thing before. Seems WMD is Russian initials for 'Open Mobile Platform', which is the group adapting Sailfish?

[or that's just what they want us to believe ]

There must be a "not" missing in the first sentence, ins't it? I mean, weapons of mass destruction is one thing, but transmitting my personal data to foregein Servers is much worse ....

Yep
OMP stands for Open Mobile Platform (in Russian — Otkrytaya Mobilnaya Platforma) and at the same time for weapon of mass destruction (in Russian — Oruzhie Massovogo Porazheniya).

What is also interesting, INOI (in Russian Inoy or иной) can be translated as '(an)other', 'different', 'not like others'. That's how they emphasise difference from android and ios devices, I believe.

And for sure that controversial passage has the opposite meaning in the original. So, correct translation is: Unlike iOS and Android, the platform stores the user's personal data in the smartphone and do not send it to the foreign servers.

'Unlike' ... where have I heard that before.

Dare I ask what the Russian for 'soon' is?

There clearly is a Jolla gap. We need a Jolla West!
