Indian central government has been making headlines around the world for wanting to release its own operating system for mobile devices since last year. Just a few days ago, they released a fork of an Android called BharOS (Bharat, Hindi name for India). It’s just another garbage AOSP project released by a bunch to disrupt Google and Apple duopoly in the market that offers nothing new and useful for 99.999999999% of the humanity.
My question is why isn’t Jolla lobbying Indian government or prominent Indian companies to release their software to Indian public? It could offer them an access to Indian market and put them on the map and give them much needed recognition. I mean what could go wrong when making this deal? Jolla tried to collaborate with the worlds’ largest country. They might as well consider collaborating with Indian government and companies for making an alternative revenue stream.
As far as I know, Indian subcontinent could offer the much needed app boost for Sailfish AppStore and OS itself. Why are these lazy people running this corporation are so afraid of entering Indian market? You’ve got an open source operating system. Let the Indian subcontinent have it. You might as well find the fertile ground to grow from there.
