Finnish smartphone start-up Jolla will build a new mobile alliance which will license the MeeGo-based mobile operating system to other device manufacturers and service developers beginning spring 2013, according to Jolla CEO Jussi Hurmola.
According to Hurmola, Jolla is currently building up a new 200 million euro mobile alliance based in Hong Kong, China. In the core of the alliance is the MeeGo based mobile operating system which Jolla calls "Sailfish".
"Our intention is to build a third smart phone ecosystem in China", Jussi Hurmola says to Talouselämä. The other two major ecosystems are Google's Android and Apple's iPhone.
"The next big change in the mobile world will come from China and Jolla wants to be enabling it", Hurmola says.
