But when it comes I should be able to get the BT LE working internally so we'll be ready for it when the Jolla update comes ;)

well it's not been sold since the beginning of the year, and it coming up for three years old. it's had a good run. what jolla need to do is make some other phone available to us in Europe in sufficient quantities for all the Jolla1 owners to get one.

i thought jolla gave up doing hw and focuses on SW? currently afaik there're several inflight projects like puzzle and turing in europe

yep
personally i think we need a cheap sailfish phone that people can get as a secondary plaything. the jolla1 was too expensive for the raspberry pi hackers

aqua fish could have been a good middleground - a hundred bucks phone is not a big deal, you can spend more in the restaurant.
but it's not certified

well, the jolla c is just an aquafish with certification
and a snazzy red back cover and different modem config
though with updates governed by jolla, not intex, as the early access people have just discovered.

yes, so I would gladly bought one or even couple (for dev/test hacknslash) if it's sold in eu
