US$300 128GB Jolla Tablet - What Apple iPad must become to boost Global Tablet Sales

Loved the Jolla Tablet that runs the unique Open Source Sailfish OS that launched back in November 2014 as detailed in my blog article entitled “US$189 Jolla Tablet - Jolla Smartphone Fans and Developers combined with Price and Specs Guarantee Success”?

Well the team that brought you the original 32-Bit Jolla Tablet on IndieGogo have returned with a 64-Bit and 128-Bit version as reported in the article “Jolla Tablet with Sailfish OS is back on Indiegogo in 64GB version”, published January 29, 2015 2:17 PM PST by Jessica Dolcourt, CNET News.

With some US$1,918,306 already resized, the new model in the Indiegogo run for the 64-Bit and 128-Bit Jolla Tablet has some significantly improved specs over the previously touted Indiegogo crowdfunding the last go around. At 7.9", it got everything bigger than the original Jolla Tablet

1.      32GB up to 64GB Internal Memory, doubling the 32GB in the previous model
2.      4,450mAh up from 4,300mAh Battery
3.      128GB microSD card support, up from 64GB

And yes, the price has changed as well:

1.      US$250 for the 64GB Jolla Tablet
2.      US$300 for the 128GB Jolla Tablet

If you already ordered the previous US$189 32GB Version, fret not, you can upgrade for the difference of the price of the new ones above.

This folks, is what the Apple iPad should have been and what Apple CEO Tim Cook needs to have as specs for a Tablet to sell regardless of Price if he genuinely want to boost sales of the Apple iPad.

And yes, that includes having a physical keyboard option sold with the Tablet Case!

This is especially important in light of the slump in sales of Brand name Tablets globally as noted in my blog article entitled “Apple iPads launching on Thursday October 16th 2014 - Apple No. 2 in Gold with Touch ID as Chinese Tablets, Phablets, Microsoft Surface and Google Chromebook Competition grow”.

His promised focus on the iPad at Apple's Earnings Call with analyst with regards to their Stellar Performance during the Fourth Quarter of 2014 as stated in the article “Seven things we learned from Apple's earnings call”, published January 28, 2015 11:21 AM PST by Shara Tibken, CNET News will carry more resonance when Apple pays more attention to quality Kickstarters like Jolla.
