Jolla, the company behind the Sailfish OS-powered smartphones, created a tablet concept that made its way to Indiegogo last month. It became apparent that the company had something big on their hands after the tablet reached its goal of $380,000 in less than two hours. After raising a total of $1.8 million overall, the tablet is back on the crowdfunding site with some new goals. The company is now offering the Jolla Tablet in a 64GB variant (up from 32GB), along with a 4450mAh battery (up from 4300mAh), and support for MicroSD cards up to 128GB. Jolla has also added a fully-laminated display, as well as a gyroscope and compass..
Other than the updated specs, the Jolla Tablet has a 7.85-inch IPS display with 2048 x 1563 resolution and a pixel density of 330ppi. It also brings a 5MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, a 64-bit 1.8GHz Intel quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and measures 203 x 137 x 8.3mm. Aside from running Sailfish OS apps, the Jolla Tablet can run Android apps. You can download these directly through the Jolla Store and other Android app marketplaces.
If you’ve already invested in the first crowdfunding campaign, you can add $25 to your order to upgrade to the 64GB variant. Jolla has added a new perk to the already huge list called The Combo, which gets you a Jolla smartphone and 32GB Tablet ($419) or a Jolla smartphone and 64GB Tablet ($449). If you’re interested in anything Jolla Tablet-related, here are the perks the company is offering:
- Jolla Tablet (32Gb) – $219
- Jolla Tablet (64GB) – $249
- 64GB upgrade for early birds – $25
- Shipping – $20
- The Combo: Tablet 32GB & Phone – $419
- The Combo: Tablet 64GB & Phone – $449
This tablet is shaping up to be a big hit thanks to the abundance of funds the company has received so far. And considering the price for some high-end Android tablets out there, a 64GB tablet for only $249 doesn’t sound half bad. If you’d like to pledge, head to the Indiegogo link below for some more info.
