Just visited https://shop.jolla.com/ to check the process for downloading a free version of Sailfish X. I’ve had Jolla/Sailfish since the Jolla One and have bought an Xperia 10ii in anticipation of the launch of Sailfish for the phone. I have an XA2 and Xperia 10 Plus both running 4.0 purchased with funds I have as a refund for the Jolla Tablets I ordered.
I am a long term supporter and user of the OS.
I was therefore shocked to see that the page for the Free version of Sailfish X now seems to exclude the UK! The dropdown does not include it and the message “Select a valid choice. GB is not one of the available choices.” is given.
The small print also says “We are currently making Sailfish X available in the countries of the European Union, Norway and Switzerland (“Authorized Countries”). Purchasing Sailfish X outside of the Authorized Countries is prohibited.”
Whether you support Brexit or not this seems crazy. Has Jolla abandoned all the loyal users in the UK and what happens if I want to use my remaining Tablet balance to get another license for my Xperia 10ii ? Is this prohibited?
It’s time for Jolla please to confirm that they will still consider the UK as one of the “Authorized Countries” and allow us to continue to use and support Sailfish.
I trust this is an unintended mistake and we’ll see a quick correction. Thanks.
If you are from the UK please like this post.
