With the launch of Jolla’s Sailfish OS, many new ‘good’ things have followed. One of them is the ST-Ericsson’s support for the Sailfish OS for the mobile operating systems based on their NovaThor Platforms. This news surfaced during the Slush event today.
“We are pleased to add Sailfish OS to the mobile operating systems supported on our NovaThor ModAp platforms. Supporting Sailfish from its inception shows how flexibly ST-Ericsson’s NovaThor platforms can adapt to different mobile OS’es and we look forward to seeing Sailfish powered devices in the market next year,” said Peter Oaklander, Senior Vice President for Sales & Marketing, ST-Ericsson.
In response of the above collaboration, Marc Dillon, CEO of Jolla stated, “We warmly welcome ST-Ericsson onboard. It is great that this industry leader is partnering with us and Sailfish. ST-Ericsson’s NovaThor platform combined with Sailfish OS will enable vendors to bring highly competitive mobile products to the market. We welcome other players in the mobile industry to join and contribute to this game changing movement. We also target to announce other chipset provider partnerships soon,”.
