Jolla had a dream, to take succeed where Nokia failed in the smartphone industry after the latter's acquiescence to Microsoft. The software part was relatively easy. It already had the experience in Nokia's previous failed attempts at creating its own platform. Hardware, however, was probably more than it could chew, which it found out the very hard way. Jolla has practically given up on that and is focusing on software development and licensing instead. In that vein, it just secured $12 million in funding, which would eventually help the company continue refunding its disappointed, perhaps even disgruntled, customers.
