Community community community! Jolla is seriously about community and how open this platform is for people to contribute and make interesting and stunning stuff!
We still don’t know if the keyboard OtherHalf is in Jolla’s planning or not! We also don’t know if ever they will make it or not! The cool thing is that we have this community, which basically can take care of literally everything, even building a full on hardware keyboard for Jolla’s masterpiece.
Jolla has given us the open hardware platform that is being used in many ways and bearing in mind that this phone is only 2 month old, there are pretty amazing stuff being shown and worked on. Yesterday we had the progress photo of OLED OtherHalf on JollaSuomi’s Forum (You have to make a username and a password for entry)
Nice progress there in my opinion compared to the previous prototype.
Anyway back to the Hardware Keyboard stuff. Many of us including me were expecting the keyboard to become available anytime soon. But we didn’t have any clue about how is it going to be there or who is going to build it! But the TMO community has been having a talk about this matter since long ago and they have been making researches about this matter so they could borrow the actual key-set from another keyboard and somehow match it with Jolla’s OtherHalf dimensions and requirements.
There is a poor render of it available already and it shows the whole concept of how is it going to look like.
About the camera placement and stuff, don’t ask me because I have the exact same questions! But this 100Euro piece of handmade keyboard might be worth for some people to buy (22+ already did).
So there, you can also see how to buy, and all other information you might need is also sitting there waiting for you!
By the way, for Instagram lovers, there seems to be a developer trying to port Instagram to Sailfish! Cool right?
