PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "One of the casualties of Nokia's latest cuts is Meltemi, the company's effort to create a new Linux-based operating system for low-end smartphones. The project was aimed at offering smartphones at prices that neither Android or Windows Phone could easily reach, but also would have required Nokia to try to woo developers for yet another operating system." I've said it before and I'll say it again: it's Elop's job to make Nokia as miserable as possible, so that when Microsoft finally makes its move, it can be seen a saviour rather than a predator. Everything that can be cut has to be cut to dive the price down.

How a platform which has never been confirmed, seen, detailed, or even spoken of outside of Nokia can be defended so adamantly.

What, just because it runs Linux? How the hell does anyone know that it met any kind of deadlines? What kind of roadblocks they ran into? You don't know that.

All you hear is the disgruntled laid off employees, and I'm sure to them their baby was amazing and revolutionary. If they weren't delivering, then they had to go. Period.

Besides, have you all seen the Asha Touch line? It's really impressive.
