Wow, just when you thought that the Nokia N9 saw its final update, a new MeeGo development group has formed. The new company goes under the name of Jolla and is created by ex-Nokians, both directors and core professionals, who worked on MeeGo. They will continue to work on MeeGo for the N9, continuing its story. This is great news! I can’t wait to see what this group will create.
Jolla Ltd. is a Finland based smartphone company which continues the great work that Nokia started with MeeGo. The Jolla team is formed by directors and core professionals from Nokia’s MeeGo N9 organisation, together with some of the best minds working on MeeGo in the communities.
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.
