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.

I have a N900 and I think this is the best tablet and phone on the market currently. Actually it's a computer. I find Maemo superior to MeeGo and resistive superior to capacitive. If there was something to improve on the N900, it's not the perfect touchscreen or the perfect software, it is the screen. Blacks are not as black as on the latest phones. The N900 would benefit from Clear Black Display or something similar. Other than that I have yet to find a phone half as useful as the N900.
