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.

Lack of mainstream apps was only a small part

Well, for me it was not a question of apps. I really liked/like the N9, my problem with it still is that even today I'd have to pay around 380 Euros to buy one here unlocked, and around 300 Euros with a 2 year contract (well, to be correct, there'd be one for 60 Euros with a 2 year contract but with a monthly fee of 58 Euros). So come on. I mean my current Android phone was 30 Euros with 10 Euro/month fee with a 2 year contract. I also like Aston Martins, but I live from a salary you know.
