PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Jolla, the mobile startup staffed by former Nokia executives who want to keep the company's MeeGo software alive, says it will use existing technology to bring in apps from other platforms - including Android. Will it be enough to boost the plucky company's fortunes?" It won't be a saving grace, but it's a nice bonus. There's something about these guys that fills me with confidence. Can't wait for their devices to hit the market.

Just to clarify, Jolla aren't going to release Meego hansets, they'll make handsets with an OS based on Mer Core with their UI. Jolla use Meego name rather loosely, referring to the effort inherited from the Meego project, rather than to the Meego project itself which is managed by the Linux Foundation and is now basically halted.
