One usually relates crowd funding with devices made by start-ups and small companies who can’t fund their own device productions. It makes sense, right? And this is why most don’t get great reviews at the end of the day, but then we have the sporadic wonders, much like the Jolla Tablet.
We have already shown you a demo of the Jolla Tablet, but we didn’t go too much into detail then. We wanted to give you a deeper look into the device, so we jumped on it as soon as we could, at the show floor.

We actually kind of love this tablet. It looks super sleek and feels very well-made. This thing is solid, featuring what seems like a metallic back and no cheap materials, overall. And because it has a 7.8-inch display, it is super easy to hold and get a good grip on. By the way, that screen also happens to look very good.
Of course, the tablet does run Sailfish OS, which is Jolla’s very own operating system. It’s definitely unique, so it will take some getting used to. Not even we know it very well, to be honest. What we do know is that it supports Android apps, so you won’t need to worry about missing your favorite apps until official Sailfish ones are released.
