This is being discussed on the "Jolla at MWC 2017" thread, but this really deserve it's own thread for people who might have missed it.

In short: Sony Xperia phones (starting with the Sony Xperia X) will get Sailfish OS support!


Press release:

Jolla adds support for Sailfish OS on Sony Mobile’s Xperia devices:

It's still not clear, though, if this Xperia branch will come with all the proprietary stuff (especially Alien Dalvik) or if it will be only a "community port" like thing. There was no information from Jolla so far on this topic.

Whatever supports means .. Maybe like the announcement on former MWC that Fairphone 2 is supported? At least the community gets some additional devices to play with and proper 64 bit support.

"and to offer our community a follow-up device for the Jolla C launched
last year.”

Does that mean another 1000 limited device without warranty??

Shouldn't Xperia X already be certified so no problems with warranty?

Hopefully there is unlimited or large amount of devices available. Like Google is doing with their Pixel.

I don't think so. Well I don't know about the warranty. But using standard Sony devices probably leads to an unlimited availability. Because Jolla don't have to order huge batch sizes but can get them in much smaller batches. So the risk for Jolla is dramatically lower than with Jolla C.
