Following big news from Jolla almost two weeks ago, it’s reluctant to go quiet, instead taking to Twitter to announce that Jussi Hurmola is no longer its CEO. This isn’t a story of scandal or corporate dissent, but merely a restructuring to allow Hurmola to focus on Sailfish, the MeeGo-based OS currently in development. It’s no great surprise that Marc Dillon is stepping up to be the new big cheese — he’s another of the company’s founders and was acting COO prior to the shuffle. Sailfish is due to be demoed for the first time in a little over a month, where we imagine Hurmola will be eager to flaunt its progress now that he’s managed to palm off all that paperwork.
