The Nokia N9 has been in the limelight ever since it was announced. As new a revelation as this might be for Nokia fans, it might only spell doom for Nokia’s MeeGo platform. From what Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat has to say, Nokia’s latest MeeGo smartphone, the N9, will also be their last device ever to run on their somewhat ill-fated endeavour of an operating system. It comes as a bit of a surprise because most of the Nokia loyalists around the world were probably expecting more improvements in the OS at later dates. These fans will now be left wondering if Nokia will ever be issuing bug fixes and updates for an OS that could become obsolete the day it gets launched. However, Stephen Elop Nokia’s CEO says that there won’t be any more MeeGo, no matter how well the N9 does.ns
The smartphone that could not be?!?
Earlier this year when Stephen Elop was talking about why he chose Windows Phone 7 over Android, he did not mention much about the OS which was being developed in partnership with Intel. The latter might not be too surprised as they themselves felt that Nokia was the wrong partner. Since Nokia won’t be working on any development towards the platform, we wonder whether it will affect the sales of the N9 adversely.
Will you still buy an N9 after this? Let us know in the comments section below.
