Finnish handset maker Jolla, founded by some ex-Nokia employees, is in talks with partners to sell its smartphones in India, initially by tapping the popular e-commerce route. The company has built its own operating system Sailfish which will provide users alternative to Android, Windows, Blackberry and Apple’s iOS. Sailfish OS is  available for free to install on other Android handsets. Jolla has announced agreement with F-Secure for mobile security on Sailfish OS .

400 euro price-tag is a financial burden for the early users. As Sailfish OS is available for free to install on other Android handsets, Jolla will be able to increase the user base and gain more feedback on the OS. Security is a main concern and it may pull users to use Sailfish OS in coming years rivalling Android.
