Jolla Mobile has presented the Sailfish OS, commonly assumed to be MeeGo Harmattan successor. They also have opened the website JOLLA.COM where you can find livestreamed presentations of event and youtubeed also. At SAILFISHOS.ORG you can find details for devs, the SDK, how to contribute etc. As it was told during presentation: "SDK idea is to allow creating software commercial licensed and open source". It is Qt based. See for your own eyes and have fun! :)
G to The G-Gold, 22 Nov 2012Can you install whatsapp and angry birdsAngry Birds can be installed directly on N9, whatsup have a clone by community which works even better then original so the answer is yes. See here: http://nerdsmagazine.com/wazapp-is-whatsapp-for-nokia-n900-and-n9/ And as I know there is also the oryginal Whatsup for N9 and N900 but community clone is reported to be much better. I don't know I don't use this one.

Actually these things are saved in another partition of N9's memory called EMMC. It will not be effected by any update. Again mind it, it will be safe if you are updating the device Over the air or via Nokia Software Updater.

Never saw such complain at TMO or on the Facebook MeeGo page. Also I have asked some N9ers who are using it for a year or more, even they didn't feel this degrading signal issue. BTW I have China made 16GB variant. No signal issue at all...

Any news on N9 degrading cellular network signal? Mine is still dead, signal got worse and worse and now no signal at all. I know others here have experienced degrading signal as well, are there any more N9s with this issue now?
Hi, some users saying if there is gorilla glass than no need of lamination because it's don't get scratches, is it's true ? N9 comes with gorilla glass and anti-glare polariser so there is no need of lamination.?
See direct lifestream of Sailfish OS presentation at Jolla.com the official Jolla's website! Great, great,great!! There is where you can look for the legendary N9 successor!
This is where you can see Jolla Mobile live stream from presentation (during the presentation - that is why it is called live stream ;) ) Enjoy!
And also here is some comments:
Jolla Mobile smartphone is successor of N9 and swipe UI. If you like N9 and swipe then follow Jolla Mobile.
Esk, 20 Nov 2012Sailfish is built on Mer (basically a continuation of MeeGo, http://merproject.org/). Mer's al... moreSailfish OS is based on the Linux MeeGo. Jolla say this loudly many times: Sailfish OS is based on Linux MEEGO. It use "only" THE CORE distribution from the MER (merproject.org, read there!). The core distribution is not the linux distribution, the Mer DOES NOT contain any kernel (kernel is hardware related). More or less the Mer is: MeeGo - kernel - UI, and developed a lot. The Mer is THE CORE DISTRO for hardware vendors like Jolla or Nokia or whoever else, who want to prepare own mobile system (liux one) for whatever device: a mobile, a computer, a TVset, an intelligent building IT, an IVI, a laptop, an notebook, a game console, an HI-FI audio set, a car IT, a sailing IT like for yahts, a navigation or whatany device else, anything what need a quick light rock-solid&stable system to run and to be used. The Mer is something much more bigger then MeeGo Harmatten as a Linux for mobile was. This is the set of open source libraries which makes the core distro which allow to build one's own Linux distero, but the Mer is not a Linux distribution of any kind. The Sailfish OS is the Linux distribution, the Mer not. Sailfish is MeeGo based Linux created with use of the Mer core. This is important diference. The Mer comes from "ME"ego "R"econstructed, and also one of aims of the merproject is TO BECOME MeeGo 2.0 (to be assumed by the Linux Fundation, that the MER complies all MeeGo specs requirements). Note: MER is the main point, but Mer is not a Linux distribution (yet, but still not).
MER use all code which could be used from MeeGo, eg. swipe UI is copyrighted by Nokia hence can't be used in Mer, so Nemo project does not contain original swipe UI, however MeeGo Nemo CE is fully usable for N9.
This is important first of all because this means that due to backward compatibility (origin in MeeGo) and used QT a software from N9 can run on Sailfish directly, but only when do not breaks MeeGo UI rules and is not against Sailfish UI rules.
The order is: Maemo + Mobilil = MeeGo -> MeeGo Harmattan -> Merproject.org -> MeeGo Nemo CE -> Nemoproject in Merproject -> Jolla contribution to the Mer -> Jolla created Sailfish alliance -> Sailfish OS created by Jolla and allies, BASED ON THE MEEGO(!) and use the Mer CORE DISTRO.
I hope this can make things more clear. MeeGo is important for common users, Mer is only for hardware vendors like Nokia or Jolla. You can download any Mer Linux distribution as such a thing does not exists. One must add to the Mer a kernel, a UI, and other layers to create working Linux distribution. Sailfish OS is another Linux MeeGo.
This also mean that this is opensource, and can use the whole Linux software, it use RPM packages, a this gives a whole sack of possibilities!
QT used in Sailfish OS means it is quite easy to port a soft from other QT projects (from Symbian, MeeGo Harmattan, and all QT).
Jolla must use some copyright for Sailfish OS like UI, or otherwise patent trolls will grab it, All-We-Know-Who.
Very important is that behind Jolla Mobile stands huge community, of those who are N9 fans, Linux fans, devs, companies - all who hoped Nokia N9 and MeeGo Harmattan will be howling success. And this is the power of the N9 successor - Jolla Mobile smartphone.

Mer's also used in Nemo Mobile. I've posted this already, but because of that, Nemo will probably get a lot of features ported from Sailfish. The N9 can run Nemo, though it's not really usable yet.
It seems if Sailfish and Meego share a common code based on Linux, then Jolla could actually create a N9-compatible version of Sailfish, and SELL to N9 users for a fee. I'm sure there would be a sizable market of N9 users who would pay for it.
Otherwise, Sailfish could be a licensed O/S, and Jolla could receive licensing fee from handset makers like HTC. Perhaps a 3rd party would then offer a licensed version for N9.
