PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Sorry for the delay in writing a story about this, but here we finally are: Nokia's MeeGo (or Maemo or whatever it's called this hour) is getting its successor. Yes, MeeGo, the short-lived but beloved platform running on the unicorn phone, the Nokia N9, will continue onwards in a slightly different form. Its new home? Jolla - a company formed by former Nokia chief operating officer Marc Dillon, who was the principal engineer for MeeGo/Maemo at Nokia since 2006.

Not sure what you mean by traction. Enough users to support their efforts is already traction. They don't need to be Nokia #2 in scale of their production and sales. They need to be profitable and find their users (and they will). Open Linux devices are in demand, even if it's not the top world market.
