PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This one doesn't come as a total surprise: Nokia has replaced its CEO. Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo is on his way out, and he's being replaced by Stephen Elop, head of Microsoft's Business division. This will be the first time someone from Foreign (from Nokia's perspective) will lead the company, but some fresh, outside blood may be just what the doctor ordered.

I really wonder how this will affect Meego.

Hopefully, Nokia is not a very immature company that a change in administration will cause a change in all programs and previous investments.

However, if the change is only because of Nokia's weakness in smartphone market, then definitely there will be a change in their plans.

Personally, I hope Meego plans will remain unchanged. As a competeitor to iphone, android (to me, at least) seems very immature with a very bad user experience (and user interface).

So I hoped Meego wont be rushed into the market. And it trully seemed that Nokia wanted to build a powerfull platform, instead of just having something to sell.
