The phone is definitely a work in progress, but if it gets through these worst edges I believe this can really become a good competition in the iOS and Android world. What is the hardest barrier IMHO, is that it is heavily gesture oriented, and that can be daunting at the beginning. But if you get past that, it's a very sleek and clever UI, which gives all the screen to the app.
I'll admit that the Sailfish OS maybe isn't too open, but it's built on the MER project (a community continuation of MeeGo). And if I've understood it correctly, the Sailfish branch of MER is more the user experience than the underlying layers (which is MER). In this market, I'm willing to grant Jolla some grace period to get a good grip in the market before I'd expect more openness also on this part. But it looks to me like they want to be far more open than the other alternatives.
