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.

Just tell them to use their gmail account and presto. That's not precisely "niche" and fully supports the XMPP protocol.

Not quite fully ...there are sometimes some weird lingering issues with transports for example, or even with authorisation (when adding contacts using 3rd party servers).

And anyway, Google is sabotaging it a bit - they basically stopped developing, retired their very nice desktop client (while other Jabber clients are mostly so-so, in context).

OK. "Fully enough".
