PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Jolla, the mobile startup staffed by former Nokia executives who want to keep the company's MeeGo software alive, says it will use existing technology to bring in apps from other platforms - including Android. Will it be enough to boost the plucky company's fortunes?" It won't be a saving grace, but it's a nice bonus. There's something about these guys that fills me with confidence. Can't wait for their devices to hit the market.

What's the point in being able to use apps from different platforms? Will this not encourage developers to code native apps? I'm all for Mer and I'm all for Jolla, but if I can remember this was quite a few times (OS/2, Playbook, etc.) and it had the opposite effect of pulling in more devs/support.
