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.

Possibly ;) Although I went into a Nokia store here in Ireland not so long ago, and once I asked about the N9, the guy in the shop's tone changed, and suddenly a bitterness he had been hiding under the salesman speak came to the surface and he ranted about how Nokia gave up on a good thing (MeeGo) to replace it with "that Microsoft rubbish". And he wasn't going for the geek sale line either, he couldn't actually get an N9 for me as they're not officially on sale here...

The user satisfaction ratings for WP7 phones are actually pretty high. Windows 8 reviews for the most part have been negative which says a lot.

Nokia has more of a problem with marketing and convincing people to try something other than iPhone and Android. Verizon isn't helping either.
