Jolla tablet goes beyond $1 million mark , drops price of their smartphone by 100 Euros

Jolla had a tough time selling the Jolla smartphone that ran its own Custom Sailfigh OS. The phone , designed up by ex- Nokia employees and former developers from its Meego division produced a great and unique device with a few logistics and pricing problems that ultimately sealed its fate . Now the company is back and this time they are introducing a tablet that runs a improved Sailfish OS with better Android app compatibility. The new tablet is set up as a crowd funded project aimed at earning $380,000 by December , but as of now the company has reached well over $1 million in a awesome two days . The company originally planned to sell the tablet at $189 for the first 2000 backers and $199 for the next 2000 backers , but now the company has 7370 indigogo backers who donated well over the company's target price for a device , which the company expects to sell well. To celebrate the 1 million dollar mark , the company dropped EUR100 off its Jolla smartphone , which now sells for about EUR 249 .
