Jolla Tablet crowdfunding campaign ends, second stretch goal reached The crowdfunding campaign for the open-source Jolla Tablet has come to an end this morning.
Jolla fans were able to take the funding high enough to reach the company's second stretch goal, meaning the Sailfish OS will add split screen support in addition to the microSDHC slot (expandable to 128GB) that was reached with the first stretch goal.

Sadly, the device will not be getting a 3G radio for cellular data, as the campaign needed to hit $2.5 million to "unlock" that reward. The campaign closed at just over $1.8 million.

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.

Jolla is expected to start shipping the tablet in May. See more of the device via the official page.
