Wen i read this news i was suprised and happy. I thought finally some1 is going to support mindblowing Meego.. But i am unhappy about that it is not a part of nokia. I hope that nokia wil support it And wil hav a best plan B (100% they need B).. Sure this new team wil make Meego a big success if they get nokia or samsung as their partner. Let's see who wil be 1st to acquire it..
Good news for MeeGo lovers. Nokia would regret its decision to abandon MeeGo
As a Nokia Fan and Windows Phone Supporter,
We hope Nokia can find a way to stop this, shouldn't be a problem especially if they are disloyal ex-staff.
True Nokia fans are with Elop.
Ak92774, 07 Jul 2012Name of the company should be something very striking... Jolla is something which is not multi... moreWell. Do you know what name Nokia means? It is not just a name of company, but also a name of city here in Finland.
Jolla is a finnish word. Jolla is a small boat, and it is dinghy in english.
What a stupid name.. Jolla. I definitely dont wanna carry around a phone with the name Jolla on it. Yewww..
1st step, put MeeGo in all symbian device like CM done in android. 2nd step, make jolla market place and make profit from it.
Please god....i wish this be nokia's plan to develop MeeGo by avoiding any problems from MS. Coz i really wish atleast 2-4 more nokia unibody devices in next 3 years from Nokia running MeeGo.. And those too in different specs and price segment.. Do this and it will sell like hot cakes... Please make my wish true
Nicely done Annon, that is the perfect name for it instead of jolla... kind of lame
The problem here is that the BIG players like Apple(?), Google and Microsoft blocking services to devices that aren't part of their "ecosystems".
Already, I feel Google is punishing me for not using an Android phone/non google browser on some of their sites.
Jolla, wish you all the best!! make a phone and tablet that is gonna make nokia regret why did they kill you!!!
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2012Here is my theory Nokia: - Secretly develop the MeeGo OS - Do the above through a a seemingl... morenot gonna happen! elop is an MS WP addict! they dont want linux! and the board was poisoned by elop's word that they said that they like the WP move!
iamflick86, 07 Jul 2012thats a good one buddy....heeehe... the question is can they survive wit thepatent wars happen... morewell according to them, they wont support the N9! coz i think it will be a patent battle again especially in the swipe UI! and i think they wont use the MeeGo name since its a TM on Nokia! and i think they are not supported by nokia since these people was devastated with nokia's decision of not supporting there precious meego and they just got to do what they got to do, make there OWN COMPANY with MeeGo OS AND BUILD MOBILE PHONES!!!
Jolla got my support because they know that meego has its potential especially on the feedbacks! if they will make a talbet base on meego and smartphone, i will stop worshiping nokia! i loved nokia because of symbian and meego and unibody build not because of s40 and windows phone! but i like the WPs though!
best of luck jolla!
MeeGo is going to rise like a phoenix from its ashes. In terms of hardware, we'll see what they can do. If they don't make a competitive hardware, they can give the software by licence to other cellphone manufacturers, like Google did with Android or MS with WP.
