Yes and the sad thing is that the UI of SailfishOS 2 is very suited to tablets. Perhaps even more than to phones.

It would work better on more modern hardware with more memory than the Jolla and this failed Youyota product though.

At that point, it seems the only hope for an "official" Sailfish tablet, is to try to get the upcoming Inoi T10.

(Hey, will Jolla sell a limited edition "Sailfish T" for developer of the Inoi T10, just like they did with "Jolla C" regarding Intex Aquafish ?)

Actually, my experience with the Jolla Tablet was that performance was just fine, the form factor ideal and the screen gorgeous.

The actual pain points were horrendous power usage & resulting abysmal battery life and various tablet specific bugs that have been more-or-less understandably ignored by Jolla due to the minuscule Jolla Tablet user base.

Actually, there was a third issue - have you noticed the past tense ? That because the damned micro-USB connector broke! The N900 connector curse coming back to kill its high-minded offspring ? We can only guess!

My Jolla's 1 micro USB broke too, requiring me to urgently source compatible part and find someone with a better hand to solder it.

(and in between used to rotate batteries and charge them with a dedicated universal LiPo wall charger, until the replacement got fitted)

Re-broke a couple of months later and shorted and fried the motherboard. I managed to source a second-hand one from the foroum (and luckily had a recent enough image of the partition, so moving my data was a breeze).

Eventually moved to Sailfish X. That one hasn't taken enough abuse yet.
But that's why I like wireless charging solutions (My old webOS powered Palm Pre and HP Pre3 come to mind) despite not being very efficient : less breakable parts over years of abuse.

That's the thing I miss most from my old PalmOS-powered Tapwave Zodiac : that was the last PDA I had with a screen specially geared toward out-door readability.
(Only since I bough an eInk reader - Kobo - did I get something outdoor friendly)

Most constructor build screen geared toward looking great on a shelf or at a social gathering (indoor, not very bright light), because that's sells the most : because that's when people notice which screen has the most contrast/brightest colours.

Good transflective screen tend to not have as bright colours in the dark (they'll look a little bit washed out) - they'll look as if having the shittiest screen when compared with other models, thus people buy them the least.

Purely transmissive screens or OLEDs, by using a good backlight source or *being* the light source itself can look great (and so users by them), but once you take them out-door, their light though decent, just cannot compete with the massive light output of the giant ball of fusion power hovering in the sky.

But unlikely. Jolla wants to forget about the tablet fiasco.
