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.

And so they have become a pure hardware OEM dependant on MS software.

Something that strikes me as odd is that people usually points market saturation as a reason for Nokia to not go with Android... which seems reasonable, but then companies like HTC were thriving in that market years ago when the OS was about as young as WP is now.

The difference is Nokia is not thriving at all in these early WP days, and I don't think their headstart guarantees that someone else like Samsung won't storm into the WP8 market later on, suffocating every other company and driving Nokia into the ground.

And that's assuming that WP8 will eventually take off, which isn't a given either.
