With Fairphone, Jolla shares a very active #community that values #transparency both in #hardware production and #software. Since autumn 2015 Jolla #developer community has been working to port #Sailfish OS to the Fairphone 2, the ethical #smartphone that uses #modular #design to increase the phone’s #longevity and #repairability. Following the progress of the community #porting, Jolla and Fairphone are now evaluating possibilities to enter into commercial collaboration based on common #values.
Olivier Hebert, Chief #Technology Officer at Fairphone comments:
“Making the Fairphone 2 hardware an open development platform has been one of our major ambitions from the start. This way, we can foster innovation into new mobile software technology and applications, while giving users the choice in the operating systems that they want to use. Sailfish OS is something that a large proportion of our community has been very interested in. We will continue supporting the community to port Sailfish OS to the Fairphone 2 and are excited to explore the opportunity of commercial collaboration with Jolla.”
