Cape Town - Ex-Nokia team members have produced a new smartphone with an operating system the Finnish company dropped.The new Jolla smartphone runs the Sailfish OS, which is built on the foundations of MeeGo, the software that Nokia dropped in favour of Windows Phone.According to a report on the BBC, Jolla is slated for release at the end of 2013 and the touch device is compatible with Android applications."This [device] creates opportunities for newcomers to come in. It's different, but it's purposefully different," said Jolla co-founder Antti Saarnio.The device has an 11.4cm display and an 8 megapixel camera.The company has also touted the device's ability to change the display based on what colour cover is used."You connect it to the phone, and the user interface reflects the players and colours of the team. It's an interesting way to show you 'belong' with something," said Saarnio.He left Nokia after working on the MeeGo software. The company only released one device - the N9 - that supported the OS, before moving to Windows Phone, though many of the design cues on the N9 were incorporated into subsequent Nokia devices.Saarnio has high hopes for the new device, but insists that he does not want a fight with Nokia."We are actually quite open - we are offering this operating system for other smartphone makers to use. Let's wait and see and we will just do our best in our business."
