MeegoPad T01 Shows Up Sans Licensed Copy Of Windows
When it comes to computing power, most of the smartphones that we hold in our hands already come with their fair share of juice, although I am quite sure that more can still be done. However, there seems to be a new “breed” of computers that might just cater to those who want something small – very small, such as the Intel Compute Stick, and the MeegoPad T01 would be […]

Nokia Kills Support For Symbian And MeeGo Apps
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.

Nokia To Drop Symbian And MeeGo Support At End Of 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.

Nokia N9 Users Petition Nokia For Updates And Bug Fixes
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.

Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean ported onto a Nokia N9
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 […]

Jolla intends to keep the MeeGo flag flying
Just last week, we talked about Nokia parting ways with MeeGo, but is that the end of the operating system platform?

Wazzap! is a Whatsapp port for the Nokia N9
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.

OpenMobile's ACL will let Android apps run on MeeGo devices
