Nokia N9 Confirmed As Final Meego Smartphone

Well the reign of the Meego smartphone didn’t actually last long as apparently the word hitting the net waves is even if the first Meego handset, the Nokia N9 is a success; the Nokia N9 is actually the first and last Meego device the mobile world will get.

According to the guys over at Ubergizmo, and by way of My Nokia Blog, Finnish newspaper Talouselama is reporting that Nokia boss Stephen Elop has stated that Nkoia will not be coming back to Meego.

Here’s what the newspaper posted (translated), “But even on that phone sales would be a success, Nokia has no intention of coming back Meego smartphone operating system, says CEO Stephen Elop”

However, apparently the product manager for Nokia, Jussi Mäkinen apparently holds a more positive view on the Nokia N9 and Meego, and tweeted“The innovations in design, UI, and the Qt developer experience in Nokia N9 will live on in a variety of ways in Nokia.”

Having said that, we know Nokia is now commited to delivering Windows Phone 7 handsets so perhaps with the arrival of the Nokia N9 it is the final nail in the Meego coffin, what do you think, should Nokia push out more Meego device or not?

    How can you succeed in a product if the top guy in the company says.. THIS PRODUCT HAS NO FUTURE..

    Really…even if we have a real success, we will not continue this way.

    Strange way to make business. Why couldn’t Nokia have two OS : much devices with WP7, and some Meego devices. With that strategy, they could see if Meego sells good or not, and have different options to adapt to the market (the real market, not the market Elop imagine, with everybody wanting WP7…even if I think WP7 is a good OS, I prefer what I saw in Harmattant, and I am not the only one).

  3. This phone is a great replacement to the cult N900 I can’t wait to drop my Android and get this open platform. (Real Linux – that’s what scares the industry)

    There is way too much peer pressure to buy Android or Apple.

    This comes as a great big refreshing brilliant change!!

    Bravo Nokia for the best handset on the planet!!!!!!!

    Really poor strategy for Nokia. What is the point of releasing one then? I’m really excited for N9 but them as a company can’t even trust their own product, how can they expect their consumers to do the same?
