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.

I didn't say ***YOU*** can't enjoy your apps. I'm saying that the idea that "it's all about the apps" is bullshit.

Lots of people never use an app on their "smartphones". Millions download them at the beginning, then never ever touch the app store again. All of these customers will buy anything that:

- is good looking
- is being properly marketed in a fashionable way
- has a big screen and a good camera
- has a good battery life
- is easy to use right out of the box

(probably in that order, but maybe not)

I'm not even sure apps come right after...
