Yes, today is the day that you can buy your very own Jolla in India and surprise surprise, it’s much cheaper.
Before the launch many of our Indian friends were concerned about Jolla’s price if it was going to launch in India, as there is a very tight and competitive market potential available in India while the majority people, according to the statistics, tend to buy cheaper smartphones and get the most out of them.

Despite all the reasons that Jolla is more expensive in, say, Europe or HongKong, they have thankfully changed their pricing strategy in Indian market so that they can match the price while having something to say about their hardware which in the eyes of many, is behind the competition despite being able to run the software just as fine. Talk about optimized OS!

The PR isn’t out yet as far as I’m concerned but the launch has happened and Jolla phone is now available in India for 16,499 INR (~210 EUR) which considering the experience the phone will offer, is a fantastic price and people are already happy about this change.
And the first 90 lucky customers will get the famous VIP Pack!!
We’ll wait for the Press Release and will surely get back to you!
