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.

I think it´ll be hard outside geeks.

They´ll have to please the carriers. They could do things like integrate the carriers´alternative to Whatsapp (Joyn) like the N9 does for Skype.

They also should hire some Meltemi guys to have models from the low-end to the high-end.

I don´t care very much for the numbers of applications so if I can get some key ones and the price isn´t very high i will probably buy one (and there is always OpenMobile's ACL).
