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.

New Phone

i have used the N8 N9 and Lumia Nokia phones, the N8 has the best features, High Def camera, FM Transmitter (one of the best features) and large storage, but the symbian OS was a bit crappy, the N9 MEEGO OS is great and easy to use, but i missed the features of the N8, the handset was a step back in my opinion, and now the Lumia.....What a chunk of crap! it is glitchy and the navigation is awful. when you bring out your next phone, for it to be successful, it will need to have following features :

1. FM Transmitter - this is one of the smartest features of any phone. and a must for those who use the phone as a media player. in the car, turn on the transmitter and listen to your music while driving.

2. HD camera- at least 8MP at the very min 12MP preferable. phone photography and facebook are becoming a normal part of everyday life.

3. tough case / Waterproof - the phone must be durable and the technology is available and cheep to make phones waterproof so why arnt they? water is the biggest killer of handsets.

4. GPS and quality navigation software - this must be free to use once purchased otherwise people wont go for it.

5. large internal storage - 64gb min or expandable memory. once again a must for those who use their phone to watch movies or listen to music.

6. the most important a decent battery - nothing more frustrating than a phone that goes flat all the time, lets face it the N9 eats batteries.

7. Flash player, a must for internet usage.

8. plus all the usual bluetooth and stuff.

people are after a single product that does the lot, it has to be much more than a smart phone, its a music player, a pc ,a GPS for the car, and a memory stick all in one. and a quality look and feel is also a must. you might think this is over the top but it is what people want.....Quality

i guarantee if you can meet these specs, with the MEEGO os you will be on a winner

...Your thoughts?
