Jolla Officially Expands Into India on Snapdeal

Finnish smartphone maker Jolla is doing things a little different than other OEM's in many ways. One of these is to expand slowly and only sell their devices in countries they can support.  Today they announced that are expanding into a key market India.  This market is key since India was a Nokia stronghold and Jolla is a company started by Ex-Nokians running their too soon orphaned (and brillant)  MeeGo/Sailfish OS.  Check out the...
