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.

I think too and so did lots of the analysts back then. That MeeGo would find a permanent place among the top ecosystems was not a question.

And how many of those "analysts" (perhaps the first four letters say it all...) said pretty much the same thing about WebOS, Bada, Windows Phone?
How many claimed that iOS or Android would struggle?

If you do not like "ana (the first four letters) then you may like "rating"? Yes, yes. Very immoral, dirty, pervert. But hey, we are adults (or not?)!

Sooooo.... rating. Moody's, Finch and S&P where believing that too else Nokia would have been downgraded before already (but not to junk which is Elop's very own unforgetten acheivement!).

If that's to pervert for you, and I could understand that, then we could also compare the partner-ecosystem MeeGo had? Or we could look which telco's/carriers?etc where announcing support? Or we could investigate all the reviews, consumer-satisfactions of the N9? But then looking at others satisfaction is not as satisfiable then g'd old "ana ...

So now you even think that " is a letter?... more telling.

Not "immoral, dirty, pervert" BTW - just apt, perhaps. But of course, you are free to go from that to displaying an adolescent-type fixation - that's even more telling.

Overall, it never ceases to amaze me how generally disliked can be bankers, investors, and such (the kind of people who largely brought the present Nokia situation - people who didn't value much the long-term performance of Nokia, people who brought in Elop) ...until those who usually dislike them want to prove some point.

There was hardly any Meego ecosystem worth speaking of, carriers didn't care, and reviews (or reliability...) of N9 were mixed - surrounding it all in mythos didn't have a chance to change its long-term prospects in the marketplace.
