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.

Nokia wasn't healthy for a good few years already, and some people predicted the downfall ...we just didn't always want to listen. How it all happens fairly rapidly, recently, is mostly an unravelling of long-present downward spiral (which just didn't manifest itself much outwardly, for a long time)

And about those layoffs, largely also in Nokia manufacturing plants ...we decided we don't want to pay for something made in ~Western fabs, not more than for toys made in East Asia. Which would tend to push profit margins and stock down (ultimately, leading to closure of many W fabs, and even using Compal ones for example)
