Jolla, a Finnish company founded by former Nokia employees, has announced that they are prepared to issue a full commercial version of their operating system Sailfish which will be numbered 1.0.

Sailfish is built on the foundations of MeeGo, the operating system that was supposed to be the future of Nokia's mobile devices before the company entered into a partnership with Microsoft and decided that Windows Phone will be the operating system for their future devices. Sailfish allows users to directly execute the applications for Android, so the companies point out that there are thousands of applications immediately available to users. But they also state that the developer community behind Sailfish is also very much alive and have already developed applications that allow access to popular social networks and instant messaging, like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, and Foursquare.

Users of devices based on Android will also soon be able to try out Sailfish louncher that mimics the interface of the original OS. Partnership with Rovio, the Finnish company behind Angry Birds, was also announced, through which they will offer for masks Jolla mobile phone with pictures of characters from Angry Birds, and wallpapers, ring tones, and various other content related to Angry Birds.
