    lg are still a major partner for meego iirc so it hadnt been dumped, really odd that nokia would do this now as support will be dropped shortly after i reckon

    So, that doesn't make them any different to other major phone vendors (yes I do mean you SonyEricsson!)?

    I'm not sure that I'd welcome a MeeGo phone - on the other hand a tablet/netbook/photoframe might be a different kettle of fish. Got MeeGo and Ubuntu Natty on my little Acer A150 and to be honest I far prefer MeeGo to Natty - boots in a fraction of the time and just feels "faster".

    Why, oh why didn't Nokia go Android?!

    Wonder if this announcement is to remind MS that Nokia do actually have a Plan B if Redmond start fumbling on WP7? (yes, I'm cynical)

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Nokia didn't go for Android because it thought it would be difficult to differentiate itself from all the other Android OEMs. There are lots of experts who still reckon NokiaSoft will get a lot of market share and I still think the other WP7 OEMs will quietly give up and focus entirely on Android.

    It's only sorta-MeeGo. It's not really real MeeGo.

    Re: News - Teaser video leaks of apparent Nokia N9 running MeeGo

    nokia never abandonned meego, they merely decided it couldn,t grow fast enough to compete with ios and android as one of the three mobile ecosystems, so they pulled in wp7 instead.

    they still intend to spend circa 200m US per year on meego, which shouldn,t appear strange given that samsung supports android, wp7 and badu.
