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.

So many ~internal OS projects dying or hardly getting off the ground (old & new BB, Symbian - in few variants: MOAP, UIQ, S60, S80, S90 - & Maemo, PalmOS and WebOS, even Bada), some also with "good potential"

...there really doesn't seem to be much place left for such efforts of not-software companies, not with the shared Android all the rage, and also iOS (well, this one's fairly internal, but Apple is a world of their own and with their rules). There is possibly even barely a place for Windows Phone - but, if there's any chance of a major player outside of iOS and Android, that's most likely MS.

Or is that part of the conspiracy? (other than that, yes, there's lots of MS money going to Nokia accounts)

Now, sure, Meego seems very nice (even with cute bonus) - but why would it give them future, why such another dilution of efforts and funds had good potential to succeed as a product in such market landscape?
