Can Sailfish take on Android in China?

Finnish smartphone upstart Jolla Ltd is turning its revamped OS into an open-source platform called Sailfish in an attempt to become a viable alternative to the Android mobile ecosystem. And mainland China is the center of Jolla’s attention because of the huge consumer base and a plethora of electronics makers aiming to claim stakes in the domestic and global handset business.

Jolla established its Asia headquarters in Hong Kong in December 2012. It has signed a sales and distribution agreement with D.Phone Group, the largest mobile phone retail chain in the mainland with 2,000 stores, targeting 150 million-strong domestic smartphone market that Jolla hopes to penetrate. Jolla is looking to launch its first high-end smartphone in the first quarter of 2013.
