The Finland-based mobile company, Jolla has opened up additional pre-orders for its upcoming Jolla Tablet in selected countries including India. The company said that “limited” consignment of additional slates is now available to pre-order via its official website – priced at €267 (19,822 INR approx.) for the 32GB variant, or €299 (22,198 INR approx.) for the 64GB variant (Prices vary by country, depending on VAT).

Sailfish OS 2.0 works with your hand movements via simple gestures. And while Jolla touts Sailfish’s core open source credentials, its Sailfish UI remains closed source for now.
