    I was watching some videos and the OS looks buggy, the Android apps don't run well, lag and crashes. Reviewers describe the UI as inconsistent and confusing.
    It seams Sailfish was rushed to market and needs a year or more to correct the bugs, improve the Android runtime and usability aspects.

    Plus if you try to even explore installing roms and all, and you are not the type's that savvy with these software things, good luck with getting the phone back to 100 percent. It is actually the reason why I like Apple's phones because they often just work the way they should and they are incredibly hard to screw up.

    Sailfish has that "magic" about it that could get it to the #3 smartphone OS in no time at all.

    I think it is dead already. Just take a look how hard it is and it was for Microsoft to capture some market share. Now compare how big those companies are and how much money they have to spend.

    Part of Microsoft's problem was that it didn't have a very good app ecosystem behind it. If Sailfish uses Google's Play Store it has an instant huge app ecosystem.

    I don't think Google allows its Play to be part of other operating system. Jolla can run Android apps but very likely not directly from Google Play Store. Ecosystem probably depends on developers willing to submit app to another app store.

    Ok this is what I believe

    If you have a basic knowledge about a new product, you can build an image of this product future.

    The Jolla Sailfish OS have a power, which every Smartphone company running behind it, this power is the word "Gestures"

    Yes Sailfish OS is a Gestures base OS, It is the natural way mind can imagine for the development of the current UI of each OS.

    How is that ?

    1- When Nokia and Black Berry tried to develop a touch OS they created two close OSes the Nokia MeeGo (the father of Sailfish OS) and Black Berry 10 OS which it is also close to MeeGo.
    2- The power word Gestures is the idea which developers and engineers trying to implement in older OSes like iOS and Android.

    Sailfish OS started from the right place with the right ideas.
    They are a team with a vision, they know how to combine Software with what people looking for Hardware to create the Perfect Formula of success.

    Give Jolla & SailFish OS another two years and watch their shares in the market.

    I feel Microsoft should be driving cars around the globe ASAP be the master of your own destiny and all that.
    Why stop with maps? When are Microsoft going to buy the coffee plantations that supply Redmond?

    My opinion is that Nokia's current data is subpar and they don't have the resources to catch up to Google, and I believe I've previously heard someone (Rubino?) say that Microsoft isn't really impressed with HERE either.
    Every review I've seen of WP and HERE says HERE is great, but my experience is the same as yours. In my city, the data is poor, and in places even dangerously wrong. It's different to Apple Maps, which just misses a lot of stuff. HERE has an enormous quantity of data, but it's not very accurate.

    Google Play is now available on BB10. No idea what Jolla have planned, but I wouldn't totally rule out Play coming to Sailfish.

    I don't think so, I tried Google and only find something like this: Statement from BlackBerry on Google Play / BlackBerry 10 rumors | CrackBerry.com I know it is month old article however probably nothing really changed meanwhile. I know Android apps can run on BB10 but that is not the same thing as full Google Play support. And why would Google allow competition to use their app store?

    "Magic"? As in fairy dust and unicorns? That's a pretty ridiculous statement tbh.

    You are right that this seems to be rumour, not fact.
    Google might do it because they make money from the Play Store. The more devices use the Play Store, the more money they make.

    Actually,Sailfish is also a android os just use another operating interface.what make the os blue is the phone can't use the meego apps(though meego apps are so little). it comes to me that sailfish os will never be a threat on wp, cus sailfish os is so disfluent and disfunctioned,its hardware don't catch up with any other phones such as galaxy series.but have a really high price.will the sailfish company manage it?
    just my personal view about the os.what's ur own opinion?@.@...
