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.

You think Maemo / Meego effort was keeping them alive, or had high likelihood of doing so? (enough for MS to care about it?)


They were busy killing themselves back in 2007. They has an RFID based tracking technology that we were going to use, including buying loads (potentially hundreds) of handsets and a license fee payable to them yearly. We went on a course to learn the API and everything. They killed it 2 month later with no real explanation. Not even the developers at Nokia who we'd been talking to on a semi regular basis seemed to know why or have had much fore warning. Nokia is a company with no idea how to treat customers well, be they corporate of end users.

Don't even start me on Maemo and the N8x0 platform.
