Hello Nerds & Sailors!

After 10 Month of Research and Recherche I found an supplier in China, who has Aigo X86 Tablets. (Jolla Tablet Clone) in stock.

Who don't know yet, Aigo X86 is an ODM Reference Design Tablet.
Jolla took this Reference Design and made small changes for their
Jolla Tablet JT-1501.

Aigo x86 loks, feels and work the same as original Jolla Tablet.

Differences to the original Jolla Tablet:

1) 16GB eMMC (Internal Storage) (Jolla Tablet has 32/64GB)

2.)Display has the same Retina resolution (1536x2048 @325 dpi),
but has another internal connection (eDP) (Jolla Tablet = MIPI)
Unfortunately this is why Aigo x86 Display is not interchangable with Jolla Tablet.

3.) The Cover is black on the sides (Jolla Tablet = white), metalic finish on the backside (Jolla Tablet = black)

All other HW-Specs are the same.

The price is 270,- EUR incl. EU-Shipping.

For the first batch (5 Aigos) there was not necessary to paid tax/customs, but i can't guarantee that will not change in the future.
The total price of 270,- EUR includes the Tablet and Shipping, but doesn't include any taxes. I will inform every buyer, if something changes there.

Thats the reason, why i order the Aigos from China in small batches.

Shipping to Non-EU coutries is also possible, but would be a bit more expensive and will take a bit longer.

If you live outside of the EU, there is a possibility to send the Aigo straight from China to you country. It would be faster, but you will need to flash SailfishOS instead of Android MUI by yourself.
Its not difficult and takes 5-10 Min (on Linux) .
Flashing under Windows / MacOS is also possible, but is a little bit more complex because of the DnX Driver Installation.
I will provide all necessary Files for Flashing.

The Aigo x86 Tablet will be delivered with
latest version of SailfishOS 2.1.0.11 incl. Alien Dalvik.


BTW. The silver button in the MicroUSB-Port is my WSKEN Magnetic Charger adapter, don't wonder


I think Paypal Payment is the safest and the simplest payment method in this case. You pay me via PayPal and i pay the supplier via PayPal.
Every Transaction is protected for an amount of 45 Days.

Aigo x86 will be delivered in approx. 3 Weeks after Payment.
After the Tablet will arrive me in Germany, i reflash it with SailfishOS and send it via DHL to you. Tracking-Nr. will be provided via email after shipping.

The Amount of the Tablets is limited, its depending on how much Tablets the supplier have in stock.

So these changes messed up the tablet project and was what jolla spent millions for?

Anyway, good catch! I dont need a jPad in disguise but you might find a few tablet hungry guys around somewhere.

"waited over a year for no tablet and then the same again for potential refund? inspires confidence!"

We got alredy first batch of tablets now, and had no customs problems till today. There is of course no warranty that it will not change in the future, but for today - we had no problems so far.

Maybe...

Personally, i see no huge difference between the Aigo x86 Tablet Display and Jolla Tablet Display.

The Sharp display in Jolla Tablet is more bright than the LG Display in the Aigo x86.
All other things are similar IMHO.

I haven't followed the tablet since Jolla pulled theirs, so don't remember... Does this tablet have a memory card slot?

Yes, its exact the same HW and Design like Jolla Tablet. Only a smaller eMMC 16GB and different Display vendor (But same resolution)

I have received my tablet some days ago (15 days between payment and delivery) in Germany and would like to share some feedback with you. First of all: thanks a lot, explit!

Delivery was really fast and everything went very smoothly. And I have been informed about every step the tablet took.

I have been one of the backers on the crowdfunding (one of those who didn't receive a tablet) and I thought that I would never have the chance to work and play with this tablet. Now that I earn one, I am really convinced that it would have pushed Jolla's marketshare forward. What a pity that they didn't make it...

Anyway, it works very nice! One drawback is the enormous battery consumption when in use and when in standby. Alien dalvik also works nicely, just as it used to do on my original Jolla phone. (But hey, if we buy and use one of the SFOS-devices, there will hopefully come the day when we don't need it anymore).
Explit gave me the good advice to buy one of those WSKEN magnetic charger cables you can see in the pictures and so far I think this is worth the price as the USB plug might be a weak point.

So all in all everything works as expected and I will happily say goodbye to my aged iPad now


Thanks for your work on this, explit!

Thanks also for you, dlas.revo!
I'm very happy to help all community members to get the Tabby.
I will also support Chen in his Tablet Campaign. Sailfish is not very well adapted on the i486 Architecture. We see a lot of weakness points:

- Power consumption
- Less Software than on armv7hl
- Adaptation bugs

I think, all this points can be polished out and i hope if more sailors would get the chance to get a tablet - all Sailfish community will profit of it.
