PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The only MeeGo device to ever be released, the Nokia N9, has been updated to MeeGo/Harmattan 1.3. Among the improvements are improved performance, updated applications, improved NFC support, improved copy/paste, and more. In other news, the team behind MeeGo and Maemo is now leaving Nokia, probably making this the last update for the N9.

Way to go. Elop wanted to "differentiate" from competitors by dropping all in-house developed OSs. See you, Maemo, hope you'll live on somehow. A big "thank you" to the developers who made it possible and to a company that was once visionary and innovative, although lately it frequently failed to deliver complete, competitive products in time.
Elop and the BOD share the heavy responsibility of destroying an immense knowledge heritage. It sends chills up my spine to think that so little - and insanely well-paid - action was needed in order to transform a healthy company, although far from being in perfect shape, into the complete disaster it is today, 20k (or is it 30k) layoffs later.
What a pity.
