Jolla Tablet reaches stretch goal of $1.5 million and adds 128GB microSDHC support The crowdfunded Jolla Tablet has reached its latest milestone, their $1.5 million stretch goal.
Based on the Sailfish OS, the Jolla Tablet has a 7.85-inch display with 2048x1536 resolution, a 64-bit quad-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz, 2GB RAM, dual 5MP/2MP cameras, 32GB internal storage (expandable via microSD) and a small-ish 4300mAh battery.

By reaching the stretch goal, Jolla will add 128GB mciroSDHC support. As the page reads: "Once we reach the first goal, every Jolla Tablet will be upgraded to support microSDHC cards up to 128GB! You'll never have to worry about running out of space again. Currently Jolla Tablet supports cards up to 32GB, besides having 32GB internal storage."

The next stretch goal is set at $1.75 million, which will add Split Screen capabilities to Sailfish. Says Jolla: "Split screen allows you to view and use two apps simultaneously, enhancing Sailfish OS' multitasking capabilities even further. Split screen is the most wanted Jolla Tablet software feature by our community at together.jolla.com, and we're thrilled to offer it to you as one of the goals! Split screen will be available to you as a software update during Q3/2015."

It is good to see the success of the tablet, as the open-source device has some interesting features.

This wheel has been reinvented WAY TOO MANY F'ING TIMES!

I think it's time to put 'tablets' to rest and this one seems to be the most qualified for dismissal.

Crowdfunded or not......it's just a tablet, running an unknown OS at that too!

One thing is for damn certain with tablets; they do 2 things essentially, surf the web and field emails. How is it that a run-of-the-mill product (tablets) can garner so much retail hype??


Down with ALL tablets! They are a waste and most often wind up sitting on a desk/nightstand/coffee table only third in use to the desktop then the laptop.

Most people seem to use a tablet when nothing else is around. I know I do.
