Definetly yes. The Jolla phone uses Android compatible hardware, which can be 'talked' to using Jolla's libhybris and the bootloader can be unlocked via the Recovery menu.
My current tech stuff that I use on a daily basis:
Laptop: Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 with Antergos/Arch Linux+GNOME 3 (as my main computer)
Tablet: HP Touchpad
Phone: Jolla phone
Other tech stuff I use: AmigaOne 500 with AmigaOS 4.1
