By 11:18 Thu, 15 Jul 2021 Comments

After giving us a short glimpse of its UI in the official announcement's promo video, Jolla's Meego-based Sailfish Operating System (OS) got an extensive video demo, which offers a deeper see at its features. The still developing Operating System (OS) got shown off on Nokia N950 developer handset - a logical occurrence given the fact that most of the people behind the Sailfish project are ex-Nokia employees.

Making your way around the Operating System (OS) is based on intuitive hand gestures, whose clever implementation allows you one-handed utilize of the Sailfish device regardless of its classy screen size. The Operating System (OS) in general is easy to customize - starting from the shortcuts on the lockscreen, all the way to the OS's ambiance concept which changes the color of the UI elements once you change your wallpaper.

As we already know, Sailfish Operating System (OS) supports accurate multitasking, where minimized apps can appear as cards on the homescreen. Each card can be customized by developers to display real-time app info and controls.

Here goes the Operating System (OS) in action.

Despite being still in development, Jolla's Sailfish Operating System (OS) certainly shows a lot of promise. However, we already know too well that a mobile Operating System (OS) is as fine as the amount and quality of apps on offer for it. The Sailfish SDK is currently being finalized, yet it has its source code available, and is still open to developer feedback. The Operating System (OS) itself supports both ARM and x86 devices, so we certainly hope that we hear more fine news from Jolla when Sailfish Operating System (OS) gets finalized during Q1, 2013.
