Yes Jolla was already available in Italy. And yes, Italy is a part of European Union so what’s the big deal?
The deal is, I live in Sweden. When I want to buy a Jolla phone I’ll have to go through Jolla.com and the shop my device there. Although Jolla has a very reliable web shop and it makes perfect sense to buy your device through there and wait for it a week or so to arrive and then enjoy. And that’s a problem for some people!
What if your device breaks for any reason and it wouldn’t be solvable via emailing firstname.lastname@example.org? They will kindly ask you to send your device back to Finland, they will fix it and will send it back to you. Now imagine these processes were only easier.
Buying the device: Go to the shop, buy it and go back home! Exactly like the Finns did the past year!
Repairing the device: Send/take the device to the authorized distributor and let them handle everything.
To conclude that, we’re proud to announce that Jolla is making it easier for you already! Started from Estonia and after a few distributions in Asia, they now have their next distributor in Italy, called RCH importazioni.
