Sailfish OS on Android

If you are a fan of new devices and like to experiment with new operating systems that come out, but can't afford to buy new devices every time there is a new OS fear not. You don't have to buy a Jolla smartphone, you only need to have an Android smartphone and you will soon be able to install the new Sailfish OS on your Android phone. This has been confirmed by Jolla CEO - Tomi Pienimäki:

That is the plan. We are on device business and OS business. It is fairly easy to install the OS on Android devices", Pienimäki says.

”There is no such culture in these parts of the world [Finland], but there are people that are installing new operating systems on their devices. In China it is mainstream. About half of the smartphone buyers are upgrading their older or cheaper devices with a better version of Android.”

“For us it is a possibility to distribute our operating system especially in China. There are websites that already distribute [OS] software and the Chinese customers are doing it ­so we don’t have to teach them. We just have to get Sailfish to those websites – and to make sure that Sailfish will run on different kind of Android devices.

The company (consisting of former Nokia employees) has no intention of earning from this operating system itself. The team's main income will be from applications, advertising and services.
