Submission + - Jolla Crowdfunds its First Tablet

SmartAboutThings writes: Jolla is another rising star in the tech world, having recently expanded its smartphone sales into more countries across the world, with India included. Jolla’s Sailfish OS is considered by many as a direct successor to Nokia and Intel’s MeeGo and the N9 mobile phone, but only its software is based on the open-sourced components of MeeGo. And now it seems that the company is ready to start the production of their very first tablet .

The Jolla Tablet features a 7.9-inch screen with a resolution of 2048 x 1563. The device is powered by a 1.8GHz 64-bit quad-core Intel processor, comes with a 32GB of storage, has 2GB of RAM and a 5MP rear camera. Judging by its size, we can see that this is another take on the iPad Mini and even on the ‘sister’ company Nokia. While there aren’t too many Sailfish-specific apps available, just like the phone, Jolla’s tablet will be compatible with Android apps.

Of course this was meant as a joke. ;-)
We all know, that in reality Gary Johnson (L) will be elected President! And then we don't need to encrypt our phone calls least not because of the government snoops, because Pres. Johnson has shut them all down! :-)

The question is, do you WANT to retrain in that field? Or rather do something else entirely, if you're gonna invest such time regardless? Do some honest soul searching, brother...and Good Luck!
