Jolla successfully crowdfunds its multitasking-focused iPad alternative

Not too long ago, we brought you word that Jolla intends to introduce something new to the masses this coming November 19th. Now that the day has finally arrived, the curtains have been lifted up and we are all well aware of what is in store – a spanking new tablet! Even Nokia wants in on the tablet game with their Nokia N1 which was revealed yesterday. With the Jolla Tablet, it requires your help to revolutionize multitasking.

The ranks of iPad mini competitors are swelling in number today with Jolla’s announcement of its new Tablet, a crowdfunding project aiming to bring the small startup’s Sailfish OS to a bigger form factor. Having introduced the original Jolla smartphone a year ago, the small Finnish startup has been hard at work improving its software — counting nine updates, 350 new features, and a staggering 13,000 bugs quashed since launch — and now feels confident enough to add a second device to its portfolio. The proposed Jolla Tablet is built around the same basic spec as Nokia’s N1, featuring a 7.9-inch display with 2,048 x 1,536 resolution, a quad-core Intel processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. It’s not as thin and lacks the unibody aluminum case, but it’s also cheaper and can still run Android apps. Plus, according to Jolla’s Marc Dillon, it will offer “the world’s best, state of the art multitasking experience.”
