Nokia will introduce its first MeeGo device next year
For all of you expecting Nokia’s first MeeGo device next year, here’s a spoilsport. The company’s CEO, Stephen Elop, made it clear that the device will be a “2011 event”. That’s a very peculiar way of bringing in bad news to a cult following user base. There were some reports of the device blending into Nokia’s N9 but that’s quite irrelevant a rumor for at least another few months.
There was a time when Nokia phones would enter the arena with confidence of Goliath, armed with Symbian. Now with powerful competitors taking over the MeeGo platform has a rather unasserted entry into the ring.
