Back from 2 days vacation before university starts, so lets start with a day or two old Jolla news.
Jussi Hurmola (CEO of Jolla) doesn’t yet wanna go out and say that there’s direct Android support for applications on Jolla, but you will find ACL technology inside Jolla’s phone. So what is ACL about you might ask?
ACL™ – Application Compatibility Layer. ACL is a powerful technology that enables the 450,000+ Android App ecosystem to seamlessly run on other platforms.
Just remember that the above doesn’t mean mean you will suddenly have Android Store on your Jolla phone. It will make it much easier for developers to put their applications available fro Jolla. Jolla will have it’s own centered application store.
Our user interface is more modern than the Android and iPhone. They have remained static for five years. – Hurmola

There was also one more hardware hints in this T3 article. Hurmola admits that 3,5inch screen feels small these days. It would not be much of a surprise to expect Jolla’s phone to have at least 4inch screen.
Maemo and MeeGo has always pushed the screen sizes and resolutions compared to rest of Nokia’s line up. Thanks to the OS and the target market.
