In a move which marks the continuation of the incredible work which handset-maker Nokia began with the development of MeeGo operating system, Finnish startup Jolla said in a recent announcement that it intends working with MeeGo community developers for the designing, creation and sale of new MeeGo-powered smartphones.
According to a Sunday press release by Jolla, the company’s team for MeeGo OS – which was dumped by Nokia in favor of Microsoft's Windows Phone platform – will comprise directors as well as core professionals from Nokia's MeeGo N9 department.
As per the Jolla announcement, the company’s MeeGo team will work in collaboration with international private investors and partners, and new smartphones running MeeGo OS will apparently be released "later this year."
While Jolla revealed that it is ‘aggressively’ appointing top-notch MeeGo and Linux professionals for ensuring their contribution to the development of the company’s devices, it also asserted alongside that it will not support Nokia's current MeeGo-based handset, N9, as the device is not a Jolla product.
About Jolla’s MeeGo-related decision, the startup’s CEO Jussi Hurmola said that Nokia had created “the world’s best smartphone product” in MeeGo OS; and added that MeeGo development “deserves to be continued.” Hurmols further stated that Jolla plans to breathe new life into MeeGo, “together with all the bright and gifted people contributing to the MeeGo success story.”
