Jolla on juuri laittanut sähköpostia, jossa on ohjeet kuinka saada Jolla Launcher Androidille. Jolla Launcher on tällä hetkellä alfa-testauksessa ja mukaan pääsee noin pari sataa hakijaa.

Jolla Launcher tuo tutun Sailfish teeman Android-laitteellesi. Myös suurin osa kosketustoiminnoista on mukana, poislukien kaksoisnäpäytys herätys. Myöskään Sailfishistä tuttu eventsview ei ole vielä käytössä.

Mukana tulee myös kaksi uutta tunnelmaa Oobcreative ja Oobplayful, jotka näyttävät aivan loistavilta.

Jos siis hait Jolla Launcherin alfa testaukseen, niin kannattaa käydä tarkistamassa sähköpostisi, siellä voi olla kiva yllätys Jollalta.

Video Jolla Launcherista on tulossa huomenna.
