Jolla promises to give tablets cellular connection if it raises $2.5 million

When Jolla launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund the development of its tablet, the company was only aiming to make $380,000. Somewhere along the way -- say the moment it reached $1 million in pledges -- the people behind Jolla probably realized that the public are into the idea. So, they've now added some nice stretch goal promises, the most ambitious of which being the addition of 3.5G or cellular connectivity -- but only if they get more than $2.5 million. While that's a lofty goal, the other two are a bit more realistic: they're promising to add microSDHC support for cards up to 128GB in capacity if they raise $1.5 million (at time of writing, the project is just $200,000 shy of that), and to introduce split screen capability for $1.75 million. Jolla has also introduced a $3,499 micro-distributor starter kit tier for 20 tablets. The plucky startup is clearly pulling out all the stops in order to double the current pledge total within the last 12 days of the campaign.
