<pre>HELSINKI, Finland, February 21, 2014 – Jolla, the Finnish smartphone and Sailfish OS developer, today announced the world’s first brand partners for its unique The Other Half concept. Rovio’s Angry Birds and Makia’s clothing can soon be experienced in an unseen way through Jolla smartphones.
The Other Half is an original patented Jolla innovation, which customizes the user’s smartphone in a way previously unseen. Attaching a specifically designed smart cover to a Jolla phone instantly adapts the look and feel of the phone with unique ambience, custom sounds, wallpapers, videos, partner feeds, and much more. “The Other Half offers brands and companies a new fresh and distinctive way to deliver a cobranding experience, by making the Jolla device look, feel and sound like the brand. In addition to branded physical smartphone covers, The Other Half can be customized with various branding and direct sales elements inside the phone, through Jolla’s specific partner space. With The Other Half brands can gain prime visibility not possible with other mobile platforms, but also have an easy and distinctive interaction channel with fans,” comments Sami Pienimäki, Chief Marketing Officer of Jolla Ltd.
