Despite having a successful launch for its N9 based on the MeeGo OS, Nokia still abandoned its partnership in the collaboration with Intel and Linux for the development of the MeeGo project. Since then, the new start-up company Jolla took over the project and is handling the situation quite well with the expected launch of their first smart phone later this year. But the company has decided not to go with too many surprises and start on a mid note to avoid its first attempt being played around in the crowd. The CEO of the company, Jussi Hurmola, recently stated in an interview that there will not be much surprises as their first smart phone has been designed for the mass consumers. The application store is expected to offer a large no. of apps and the Application compatibility layer will be the right answer to those who doubt the unexpected number at the start-up of the store. The technology will allow users to use Android apps on the Jolla smart phone. But the OS will be locked disabling you to flash new ROMs like in Android. But the feature is to be updated very soon in the next installments by the company. According to the CEO, it is a battle of ecosystems and user interface that will decide the winner.
