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.

It definitely isn't. Of course, that's what big corporations want you to believe, but most people buy/install apps for the sake of it, without even needing them (and abandon them in a matter of weeks, if not days).

If you need your phone to stay connected, you need a handful of apps *every* OS out there already provides.

If you're a kid and need lots of games, that's another story, but most other "apps" are perfectly replaceable by a webapp that already exists for even dumbphones.
