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.

"They’re backed by investors"

I think there are lot of investors out there who see the potential the N9 had and who think a MeeGo phone would bring enough money in to make profit with the investment.

Back then Nokia, while loosing marketshare, was still one itch below the top rating meaning a positive investment rating. They did only fall down to junk-state ("do not invest cause you will lose money") once switching strategy to WP7-only and killing of everything else including there cash-cow.
