The six-monthly release schedule has been a target for the MeeGo developers as they establish their open development and release process."

They wasted an awful lot of time with Maemo. Qt-based Meego has a huge potential, but it should reach consumers ASAP (it's already late) and not be confined to the high-end segment.

Android already has a lot of momentum, and if confined to the high-end, Meego won't be able to create a competitive ecosystem :-(

I've been delaying the purchase of a smartphone waiting for Nokia (and for prices going down). If Nokia sells its mid-range segment to Windows Phone 7, I'll simply jump on the Android bandwagon.

If there is no way to have a Maemo-based affordable phone in the short-term, they should just embrace Android in the interim. Commiting to Microsoft is simply suicidal.

I'm betting if next Meego release is coming in April, we shouldn't expect Meego handsets earlier than that.
