MeeGo Is Back

A few days back Meego at Nokia have left the company for good, which puts the development of the platform to the end. Then, earlier today The Verge discovered a Twitter post as well as a Linkedin company listing (the latter has since been deleted) indicating that a group of ex-Nokia employees has formed Jolla Mobile. Which is a startup that aims to save the MeeGo expertise that Nokia developed in producing the N9. According to The Verge, the Linkedin company page listed  Marc Dillon as Jolla's CEO. He is a 11 year Nokia veteran and the lead engineer of Maemo/MeeGo development. 


The Tweet (which is still visible) said:
"New ‪#MeeGo‬ smartphones will be created together with our industrial and investor partners and with support of the MeeGo community."

The Linkedin site was quoted as saying:
"Nokia created something wonderful – the world’s best smartphone product. It deserves to be continued, and we will do that together with all the bright and gifted people contributing to the MeeGo success story.
Together with international investors and partners, Jolla Ltd. will design, develop and sell new MeeGo based smartphones. The Jolla team consists of a substantial number of MeeGo’s core engineers and directors, and is aggressively hiring the top MeeGo talent to contribute to the next generation smartphone production."


This story if true will be pretty interesting as to how it plays up with the currently growing market. In addition they also need to protect themselves from the ongoing patent wars which might strike any company anytime. We are hoping that MeeGo will continue to develop and make more brilliant phones like the N9.
