It’s a mixed feeling for me leaving 2020 and heading into 2021. While most of the world is glad to leave 2020 in the past, as a U.S.-based T-Mobile Sailfish user, I’m sad because in a month I won’t be able to use my phone anymore. My family are all Sailfish users. N9 users before this and for me, Nokia phones before that. I am sad to think that I may soon be relegated to the other options.
But today I was surprised to see emails from Sony Developer World Newsletter. In my phone’s email preview, I spied news I was looking forward to as a potential solution. But when I view the full email, that text wasn’t there.
Viewing the email’s HTML source, I see img alt=“Xperia 1 added to Sony’s Open Devices program”
Does this mean that Xperia 1 would be available soon for Sailfish? I realize that doesn’t really solve the VoLTE issue, but I am desperate for hopeful news of a potential solution in early 2021.
Either way, thanks to all working to make Sailfish a reality. Even if I am “thrown overboard” in 2021, as soon as there is an opportunity to get the new Jolla+Sony VoLTE solution, count us in.
Happy 2021 to all.
