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.

But both definitely defeat the idea that "no one has made XMPP easy and consumable".

No one needs to publicly announce what protocol they use. It's good enough that we nerds know about it.

BTW, the fact that XMPP is used in WhatsApp helped a lot to implement a non-official client on the N9. I doubt they could have done it otherwise.
