JOLLA is a separate company. Do a simple search and read that they are going to add code to the Tizen project. Tizen is Samsung. Nokia doesn't get any more meego updates, period. They said that they will not support meego or nokia. They will be creating a new os and not build upon nokias fork because nokia owbs it. Right now it speculation what phone that they might make but if they have a deal, then a deal with samsung makes more sense than nokia. Maybe this is nokias secret plan, but maybe jfk..., if it is a secret plan, elop probably is not part of it, just the old nokia old guard was tired of nokia direction or just like they said, they got weary of nokia direction and formed there own company. It happens all the time, look at how many ppl leave microsoft to form there own company.
I hope that finnland is helping to support this new startup, I hope that some major company also supports jolla like samsung, I hope the best for the jolla team because they have a tough road ahead but they can do things that a big company can't. They can move like a small company and produce a great os, unhindered by large corporate politics. They can also add things to the os that will grow there ecosystem faster than folks believe, I hate the word ecosystem, like each os has one, ecosystems are about to merge sooner than later and if anything, it will make it really simple to port apps between these mobile os.
Source link does not exist.
Got this message on linkedin, "We're sorry but the company you are looking for does not exist."
hmm.. i know that jumping into a conclusion can be very bad, but i got theories about this jolla meego company and nokia.
first, they are the one who created this OS and they wont let it die so they created the company itself.
well 2ND, i think this is nokias "Plan B". why? they got an agreement with their partnership with MS to kill their old OSes and focus on their WP OS. because of that nokia can no longer develop other OS. so nokia told the meego team to "get out" of the company and form their own to develop MeeGo (it is just like nokia is "secretly" developing MeeGo behind oblivious MS) so, if WP 8 fails (i actually got a feeling that this will fail) they will "get" jolla company along with their latest developments on MeeGo. Jolla will be nokia's "life boat" if their ship is going to sink. (jolla = small boat in finnish according to the guy here). anyway this is just a theory... it is still uncertain. LONG LIVE MEEGO! MABUHAY!
When I read GSMarena's review of Nokia N9, I was astounded by the OS's design because it's not a copycat. It's brand new. But when I decided to buy it, it has become rare (I live in Indonesia). So, I bought a BlackBerry instead. Now, I find out that this OS is still alive makes me very happy because I still have the chance to enjoy phones with this type of OS. The next step, maybe they should remake Nokia N9 with the same proportion and screen size but adding or improving vital features like multi-core processor(N9 has only one processor), bigger RAM and ROM, refined camera(12 MP Carl Zeiss Optics?), (maybe) microSD card slot or at least 128 GB of internal memory, bigger battery capacity, 1080p full HD video recording, HD screen resolution, wide range of color choice, and especially all models are distributed in my country (64GB version of Nokia N9 was not being distributed in Indonesia).
In the end, since this is a forum to post personal opinions, don't blame me for writing a very subjective post with some grammatical errors or maybe typos...
hey all my dear friends..do u think that it was all planned?,i mean nokia , i think that mr. Elop had planned to fail nokia...microsoft mobile os was not good and maybe no smartphone company was adopting it..so they sent elop to nokia., to drown nokia..,and its oses..and when nokia smartphones was hated by all..,and it started drowning then nokia had no choice but to go with microsoft.......he made outdated phones( when other smartphones were having 1gb ram 1ghz procesor nokia smrtphones were having 256 mb ram and 600 mgz procesor, he was successful in runing nokias reputation )elop knew that after a bad experience on symbian 3 devices no one was going to buy any symbian device..he wanted a reason to kill symbian and he got it.,and when meego was made to save nokia elop didnt advetise it because it was(is) excellent..what do u think frnds? Kindly share ur thoughts....let elop know what we think of him.
Well i think this is brilliant news.Meego is a potent computing platform and could be the third eco-system..There is no reason why Meego could not blow the competition out of the water with a good app store and superb design smartfones.
They could do simple phones with an app store for the normob type customer and full blown hackable smartfones with GPU,s with fans on for the enthusiast.
meego lover, 08 Jul 2012such great news, and maybe someday meego might be a top player OS as well...Then they have to outnumber the WP7 and 8, by grabbing som 3-5 percent of the market.
Which might be the easy part en route to world domination(in mobilephone OS that is).
best news title in a while ... but i hope jolla have the necessary resources to continue where nokia left off and that more people will embrace this beautiful OS
Great news, indeed! :) I wish you all the best and I hope you'll be smart. Unlike Google, respect our privacy, and unlike Apple, don't take our money for every good app. :) I am shure you'll made it and I can guarantee that I'll be one of your first customers. Cheers! ;)
This is one of Nokia's lifeboat departing while the company sinks due to Microsoft's iceberg.
AnonD-14841, 08 Jul 2012Now let's just hope that the n9 is continued to be sold by NokiaThey closed the phone factory in Salo, Finland, where N9 were made.
That's nice. I am an Android fan but I have to admit that Meego is a nice OS. Just remember to pack the latest Hardware in your phones and there is no reason why the Meego shouldn't be able to claw itself a place in mobile OS market.
such great news, and maybe someday meego might be a top player OS as well...
@spacebar they will continue to develop the software to the existing devices and create their own smartphone. Learn how to read
This is excellent news! Now, there will be more crapdroid killers. People will now have more options of OS and the majority of those people who are sick and tired of crapdroid will choose MeeGo or WP.
I can't wait to see the fall of crapdroid in the hands of Nokia and Jolla.
