I guess this is probably the Intex device rebranded as Jolla C.
Also ordered, 13:04 Finnish time.

Yeah, I heard couple months ago from person at Jolla that they are going to launch Intex phone branded as Jolla to EU market. So I think it is this one.

It's full price phone. It can be ordered by anyone(not only devs).
It has no warranty(or would be limited warranty).
So how exactly is it developers program?
How is it different from any Jolla product, except "limited" edition and less warranty thing, that somehow is actually just a godd advertising (everyone wants to be in the elite club that actually has limited phone labeled as dev one)
Yeah, it's limited to fans only though, so please do not enter

Just in time to replace my Jolla with shattered glass I hope these devices will really end up in the hands of (current or future) developers, not resellers on ebay!

EDIT: Here is the photo of the recent disaster - the timing of refunds and device program is incredible.

Whoa, did that phone take a bullet for you?

Doesn't look much like a 'developer anything' indeed, but it's a new Jolla phone after all! Definitely ordering..

I mostly see it as a sort of a warning.

They propably can't afford any decent warranty, service, etc. So, the developer moniker is there as a warning that its not a comfy consumer thing. Buyer beware.

Gonna order one once I'm back home from work.

Nah, it's not that adventurous

After it survived many falls in the past, it finally met the intransigence of a concrete floor.

I was trying to find another one on ebay, but it looks like I'm better off waiting for Jolla C while using the old trusty N900 for a while. Let's hope it won't be too faulty without any warranty service. I think it is very smart from Jolla not to provide one - keeping a warranty service could finally bankrupt them, yet providing this possibility is a friendly shoutout to the developer community.

could not resist to throw my money after what ever comes also

I am a bit undecided regarding that "C" though.
Sad to see a very limited amount of devices again.

But hey, in best case we are evaluating whether the device is suitable for european market and pave the way for a grand release?

I hope it doesn't mean there will no Intex phone. No warranty probably means that Intex will make a small batch and that's it. Just like with tablets.
