People of Finland! If you get to be fast enough, and for some reason you haven’t ordered the phone so it’ll not be shipped to you automatically, be fast and get ready for December 11th.
As we get nearer to Christmas, people want to buy some presents more than ever! So DNA thought why not put the hot selling Jolla on sale in this hot selling season?
So today they published a press release accordingly which says:
DNA: “Jolla smartphones will go on general sale in DNA Stores from 11 December. That is also the day when the ‘second chance’ pre-bookers can collect their phones if they have selected a DNA Store as the collection point.
“At this point, only a limited number of phones will be available, but they will be shipped to DNA Stores all over Finland, and, in addition to pre-bookers, will be available to the general public, as well” says Cedric Kamtsan, DNA’s Business Director in charge of the Jolla project.
The first batch of Jolla phones went on sale at a launch event arranged by DNA in Helsinki at the end of November. At the launch event, DNA offered the fastest pre-bookers the opportunity to buy their phones among the first 450 owners of Jolla smartphones. Deliveries to all other ‘first edition’ pre-bookers are in full progress.
Second phase pre-bookers from Finland can collect their phones from a DNA Store or by post from Jolla, according to where they have chosen the delivery in advance. Deliveries to second phase pre-bookers will begin on 11 December, both by post and from DNA Stores.
Phones due for collection from DNA Stores will be held at the DNA Store selected by the customer until 13 December – byers will get an SMS confirmation today. Any phones not collected will be placed on general sale on Saturday 14 December, but pre-bookers will naturally have a chance to collect their phones, subject to availability.
DNA has played an integral part in the product development and commercialisation of Jolla smartphones and is the operator with the exclusive right to sell Jolla phones in Finland during the launch phase.
Jolla is powered by Sailfish OS, a truly open and distinct mobile operating system. Navigate effortlessly with the gesture-based user interface and load the phone with top Android (TM) apps. More information on Jolla at www.jolla.com.”
Afterwards they have posted a few photos regarding Jolla’s launch day at DNA pop-up store ( #hauskinjono )

There is also a spreadsheet for people who have received their phone via logistics. It would be nice if you fill up your information there if you are reading this and you have received your phone, we want to keep track of the phones and see how fast they get delivered.
