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.

But less sense than Android + iOS...

Overall - yes, wishes again ...but you don't address why it should work out in the market landscape, and you even ignore what actually happened - Qt (which I mentioned, really...) _was_ available for some time already on Symbian, the most widespread smartphone platform on the planet at the time, and with a "clear" (then) commitment of expanding the reach of apps to Meego. Yet, somehow, it didn't bring the flurry of dev activity.

Meanwhile, that doesn't seem to be much of an issue "even" for WP - what, 100k+ apps already?

(Symbian is not "low-end" BTW - indeed, perhaps its main problem, dilution of efforts it brings, is how there would be hardly any place left between "top" S40 handsets and entry-level WP ones)

Qt supports both of them well. I think that's the point the dude above made. Nokia could easily offer more platforms while keeping there ecosystem working across all of them. That way they could change strategy even more often (lol) without killing of there whole ecosystems everytime.

You must have a very curious definition of "well" ...but then, also fantasising - there was hardly any Nokia ecosystem in the first place (in comparison to the present major players), even the failing WP seems already much more successful in attracting devs.
