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.

With this logic nothing new can ever be produced. It's the mood of total stagnation. Jolla are right to innovate. They have expertise, they have previous accumulated effort (in Mer/Qt and open source community). Those who don't want can stay behind.

Handset companies won't care about it either.

Who said? Jolla already found partners amongst ODMs.
