01/02/2014, Over the past few years there have been a number of major changes at Nokia. The company diverted its attention from Symbian and MeeGo to focus exclusively on Windows Phone devices. It did end up clinching over 92 percent of the entire Windows Phone market, but the opted to sell its hardware division to Microsoft. Today the company has announced that its plan to kill support for Symbian and MeeGo […]
10/07/2013, Nokia, who has been rolling out Windows Phone 8 smartphones for quite a while already (after all, technology does move along at a rather fast pace), has announced that they will no longer offer support for both Symbian and MeeGo operating systems from the end of this year onward. This should not come across as a surprise, especially when you consider how Intel themselves have stopped development for the MeeGo […]
03/07/2013, The Nokia N9 was the Finnish company’s first and last MeeGo handset, and so far based on the reviews we’ve come across, many have good things to say about it. So far N9 owners appear to be pretty pleased with their purchase, but the longer they use their device, they are starting to notice more bugs appearing. Unfortunately despite Nokia promising to provide support until 2015, it seems that nothing […]
10/03/2012, Jolla is said to have plans to roll out a custom MeeGo version known as Sailfish alongside relevant hardware sometime next month. Having access to more than 200 million pounds of funding (that’s certainly a whole lot of money to play around with!), Jolla managed to rope in interested hardware partners and also achieved progress and improvements to the operating system. The Wall Street Journal reported that Jolla has also […]
07/20/2012, While the Nokia N9 might be Nokia’s first and last efforts at a MeeGo device, it certainly does not meant that developers for the handset have given up entirely as well. As you can see in the photo above, one particular developer has uploaded the picture onto his Twitter account, clearly showing what appears to be Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean running on the N9. We can’t tell if this is […]
07/09/2012, Just last week, we talked about Nokia parting ways with MeeGo, but is that the end of the operating system platform? Yes, we do know that Nokia will no longer be manufacturing any more smartphones that will run on the Linux-based MeeGo platform any more, but Jolla is another company that has stepped up to the plate, and has every intention of keeping this particular mobile software platform up and […]
07/04/2012, Parting can be such sweet sorrow, and here we are at the end of the road for the MeeGo team over at Nokia. Head of Development of MeeGo Sotiris Makrygiannis did share word that their team will no longer be available to work alongside Nokia. Just to recap, the team over at MeeGo are the very same folks who are behind numerous devices such as the N770, N800, N810, N900, […]
07/04/2012, If you thought your Nokia N9 was full of problems, fret not – most of them should be solved with the newly released Nokia N9 firmware 1.3. According to reports online, the software update which was released today features almost 1,000 bug fixes which should make your MeeGo using experience a more enjoyable one. In addition to the plethora of bug fixes, the update is said to improve copy and […]
04/25/2012, MeeGo is by no means a bad platform, but in the face of the competition from iOS and Android, we guess MeeGo simply could not compete. This has prompted Nokia to drop the MeeGo platform after releasing the Finnish company’s first and last MeeGo handset, the Nokia N9 whose design inspired both the Nokia Lumia 800 and 900 Windows Phone handsets.
02/27/2012, Are you a proud owner of the Nokia N9? If you answered in the affirmative, then here is some good news for you – the Nokia N9 has finally received the MeeGo 1.2 update, so those who have yet to activate their N9, now would be a good day to do so – pronto! The entire update weighs in at 284MB, where it should roll out worldwide if I am […]
02/09/2012, The Nokia N9 is the company’s first and last MeeGo product. The device itself sports a rather interesting design with decent specs to boot, and for Android fans around the world, if you wished that Nokia had gone with Android instead of Windows Phone, you might be in luck as developer Alexey Roslyakov, who is part of the NITDroid team, has revealed via his Twitter what appears to be Android […]
01/26/2012, We all know that Nokia’s latest gamble in the smartphone market involves an operating system that we would never have envisioned they shack up with – Windows Phone 7, but then again, weirder things have happened in the past as well (such as Microsoft Windows booting up on an Apple Mac computer). Nokia’s latest financial report for the last quarter of 2011 implied something that gives room for one to […]
11/08/2011, Good news for Nokia N9 users as the promised PR1.1 MeeGo update is finally being rolled out. The update will be pushed out to N9 users in waves, so don’t be alarmed if you did not receive the notification about the update just yet. Be patient and we’re sure that eventually the update will get around to your handset.
11/04/2011, While most of us may never see a brand new HP TouchPad again, those lucky few of you who managed to snag one up for $99 will be glad to know that even if webOS doesn’t receive any official updates in the future, your tablet will be in safe hands. There’s already a port of Android for the tablet that’s in development, and now it looks like it will be […]
