There is a catch however. Since the demand was much higher than anyone expected, they won’t be able to serve everyone at once so they will choose the first few hundreds of Alpha testers and generate download links for them, and the rest may need to wait a bit more.
Without further ado, let’s read the exact words from Harri on TJC!
The interest towards Jolla launcher Community Alpha testing has been much higher than we anticipated, and the number of people that signed up have exceeded by far the number of alpha testers that we can handle now. We thank you for the great interest, and we will start to enable download links to first few hundred alpha testers tomorrow.
As the demand was so much higher than what we can sufficiently handle now, we have decided the following:
We will continue with Beta testing on August, and all the people that have been signed up so far will be able to join at Beta testing phase.
Registration will be open by 27th of June like we said, but in practice you can now register yourself for Beta testing phase that starts on August.
We are sorry for the inconvenience for those that can not fit in now, but our aim is to deliver the Launcher to all of you as fast as we can with the current resources that we have.
