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.

Creating good phone set hardware in low volume is costly in 2012. "Traction", in other words high volume sales, reduces cost per unit and allows companies to make a small profit. I don't think they'll be able to touch Nokia's original price point for unlocked hardware.
