If you're looking for a new cell phone company look no further; 'Jolla' is a Finnish cell phone company created by an ex-Nokia staff member. This brand new phone is operating on Sailfish OS and is a mid-range handset with a low-resolution 4.5-inch display. It's equipped with an 8-megapixel camera, 16 GB of internal storage and micro-SD support.

This phone operates like an Android phone with a full touchscreen display and houses Android applications. This phone also comes with native Sailfish applications as well, along with a new 'Ambiance' feature, which is essentially 'work mode.' This feature changes the look and feel of the device according to work functions. The same is for the 'Party mode' feature, where the phone customizes itself for a party atmosphere.

'Jolla' partners with a local carrier called 'DNA' to peddle its wares and hopes to market to Finnish national pride.
