Jolla's upcoming operating system, dubbed Sailfish, is one of the few new developments that the nerds among us are really excited about. Engadget recently got their hands on a device running the OS, and have released a video detailing the operating system and all its gesture-based goodness.

Back in October, it was revealed that Jolla had received $258 million in funding to unveil its MeeGo-based phone. The company had raised the funding from “a variety of telecommunications players” including OEMs, chip manufacturers, operators and retailers. Jolla's chief Jussi Hurmola told the Wall Street Journal that the funding comes as part of a new ecosystem alliance based in Hong Kong.
Jolla Ltd. was formed by a group of ex-Nokia employees along with enthusiasts of the MeeGo OS. Jolla is Finnish for rescue sail boat or dinghy, and is a reference to what they aim to bring to the table when they launch their MeeGo-based smartphone.
