Jolla sends backers an update and pushes delivery to September Originally set for shipment in May, the crowdfunded Jolla Tablet has now seen its launch pushed back to September.
In April, the company initially delayed shipping the tablet due to issues with the display but those appear to have been fixed.

Reads the blog post: "Regarding the unexpected challenges with the display component we told you about in our previous Jolla Tablet update, we are happy to report that the critical issues around this component have been resolved!

The Developer Device loan program has been launched with invitations sent to selected developers. We anticipate that these developers will get their hands on Jolla Tablet developer devices from the pre-production batch very soon, as we will be shipping them in early August.

The risk of the July delivery schedule slipping which we mentioned earlier has unfortunately materialized due to the challenges with the display. Ramping up for general shipments to contributors will take about 3-5 weeks following the Developer Device program."


Backers are expected to receive their devices by mid-September.

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.
