Let me know off-list, how I can provide you with the required money  
(199,-EUR as currently offered in the Jolla shop). (options: Paypal?

I think that the lack of a hardware keyboard (a flipcover one) is one  
of the greatest deficits of the Jolla smartphone hardware. As a former  
N900 user I really really miss my flipcover keyboard. So many likes on  
the above from here.

Not so much needed here...

Nice! As a member of the Debian Edu team, I like educational software.  
Be it on desktops or mobile devices. Stellarium will probably be very  
cool on the Jolla tablet, once it is out.

Nice. Never tried fahrlplan. Very nice tool and it works gently with  
the Deutsche Bahn backend here.

I'd love someone to start working a Seafile [1] support in CargoDock.  
I could do that myself, but really lack time for working on more  
non-profited projects at the moment. If you are interested in that, I  
can provide you with an account on a Seafile Server for testing.

The lady of my house really loves the MaeGirls app on the N900.  
Porting that to SailfishOS could possibly give you various hugs and  
kisses here and there... (Don't miss contacting the original author if  
you start working on this).
