Not much else to say ATM

That's great news! However, I am a little bit confused about this sentence: "The Sailfish community has already ported Sailfish OS into several devices including major versions of popular Samsung Galaxy, Google Nexus, and Sony Xperia". I didn't see these ports and I try to keep a look out. Where are they?

Yeah, was wondering quite the same.
Hopefully there will be some more info on that at/after WMC

I obviously hope they know what they're talking about, but it looks like someone was too hasty and wrote this before it actually happened. I'm very excited to see the release and try porting it when it comes out on some Nexus. It would be great if they released a zip from the Nexus 4 build at MWC.

From reading the press release it appears as if they will release the software for said android devices in the latter half of 2014. I would guess that it mostly works (in house and perhaps for "community" of users with close ties to Jolla) but they are not quite there yet. Otherwise it would be available now. I'd also be interested in seeing how their Sailfish Launcher works. Sailfish does multitasking in a different fashion than android. Wonder how they handle that.

I actually decided to buy the Jolla phone. I live in the US and doubt I'll use it as daily drive since the data will be poor. But I don't mind supporting the company. I'd like to see them succeed.

I'm really curious about Sailfish OS and how it feels in your hand.

Sailfish OS downloadable to existing Android devices

Sailfish OS has been developed to be compatible with commonly available Android hardware platforms. Due to this advanced technology, Jolla is introducing the Sailfish OS experience as downloadable software to devices running Android OS. Users can soon start to enjoy the modern, gesture based Sailfish OS in selected Android devices and also renew the lifecycle of their existing older Android devices.

This will be a good way to give Android users a 'taste' of sailfish without actually committing to it.

Some videos of the Jolla phone at MWC 2014

Here is a "other half" with sensors that makes the Jolla logo light up different colors based on orientation, proximity or flash to alert of a call and you can wave your hand over it to answer with speakerphone or smother it to reject the call.

^He doesn't really show much of the OS let's see if we can find another video that shows some of the new features that are coming with the latest update.

Jolla girl demoing the Jolla (in Finnish I'm assuming). This is the latest version of the OS. You will notice some new features like landscape, tethering, fading screen feedback and lock animation
