PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Sorry for the delay in writing a story about this, but here we finally are: Nokia's MeeGo (or Maemo or whatever it's called this hour) is getting its successor. Yes, MeeGo, the short-lived but beloved platform running on the unicorn phone, the Nokia N9, will continue onwards in a slightly different form. Its new home? Jolla - a company formed by former Nokia chief operating officer Marc Dillon, who was the principal engineer for MeeGo/Maemo at Nokia since 2006.

Will it gain any traction at all (aka having good commercial software and dropping support right after release) - NO.

Will I still be buying it - HELL YES.

Nokia N900 owner here, just can't find any phone to replace it with (Android can go f--k itself). Was looking at Dell Venue Pro, but WP 7 wasn't that good (I hope WP 8 will fix that).
