Finnish start-up firm Jolla has released the new Sailfish OS and detailed the improved multitasking features, interaction and its personalisation options.

Developed in collaboration with Sailfish, the new Sailfish Software Development Kit (SDK)and Jolla User Interface (UI) will support multiple chipset technologies.

According to Jolla, ST-Ericsson is all set to support the new Sailfish OS in its NovaThor platforms.

Jolla CEO Marc Dillon said that ST-Ericsson’s NovaThor platform combined with Sailfish OS will enable vendors to bring competitive mobile products to the market.

"We also target to announce other chipset provider partnerships soon," Dillon said.

Supporting smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, automotive and other device classes, the new OS will be developed through community participation.

The Sailfish user interface is claimed to be developed as per the latest user requirements and the UI Sailfish will offer easy multitasking.

Jolla is also planning to offer ready-made Jolla hardware to mobile network operators and also advised that firms that desire to incorporate their own technologies to the device can also deploy without sharing their elements with other vendors that operate on Sailfish.

The start was formed by a group of former Nokia employees who left the company following its decision to shift to Windows OS ditching the MeeGo operating system.
