Each passing day the world witnesses new inventions that awe us. The consummate will of human beings to go beyond the conventional stuff and achieve more amazes me daily. Just some days ago the whole world was amazed by Eighteen-year-old Eesha Khare who may have developed a super capacitor that could reduce cell phone charging time to 20 seconds! I was speechless when I heard that. I mean, 20 seconds? But that’s a story for another time.
Now to the main thing. Until very recently I had not as yet heard of a company called Jolla. Commonly called Jolla Mobile, it is an independent Finland-based designer, developer and seller of smartphones. I came to understand later. This however is not what caught my attention. The fact that the company was launching (has launched) an OS to rival the common Android and iOS is. I kind of thought that area of thought had been closed! Well, I guess not. The Jolla Mobile Company are coming out loud with a brand new OS which they call “Sailfish”. Yeah. The Sailfish OS.
