PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The only MeeGo device to ever be released, the Nokia N9, has been updated to MeeGo/Harmattan 1.3. Among the improvements are improved performance, updated applications, improved NFC support, improved copy/paste, and more. In other news, the team behind MeeGo and Maemo is now leaving Nokia, probably making this the last update for the N9.

there are still internal S40


For the moment. Kill one platform at a time :-)

When killing Meltimi yesterday he also announced the plan to go with Lumia 60x future down the dumbphone segment. Guess what that means for the inhouse against WP competing S40 tomorrow?

Elop made clear that WinPhone is there only strategy. Just some weeks ago it was "There is no plan B". Either WinPhone or no phone. That includes also S40.

That's more of conspiracy talk. No smartphone OS can go as low as S40 does, at least for quite some time - Elop knows it and, apparently, pushes for continuing S40 development (new recent variants of that OS, many new phones; likewise with S30)

> Elop ... pushes for continuing S40 development

Did you compare if he used the same words he used last year when pushing Meltimi? Maybe not cause Elop named Meltimi the future of Nokia and he never used that to describe S40. So, maybe S40 is indeed on the save side for a while.
