Nokia N9 was the first and the last phone from the Finnish manufacturers to be working under the MeeGo OS. The OS introduced a swipe user interface which was widely accepted and posed a threat to the Windows Phone platform. But as the CEO for Nokia changed to Stephen Elop, he observed that the project was turtle-paced and decided to break the collaboration and started a joint venture with Microsoft to take out the Lumia series based on Windows Phone 8 as the operating system. But some of the employees working on the MeeGo project decided to open their independent venture, Jolla OY apart from Nokia under their Bridge program and develop the MeeGo OS with a new name called Jolla OS which will be much like the second phase of MeeGo.
But since the declaration of the company to be introducing their first smart phone at the end of 2012, there has been wide interest in the market to know about whether the new Jolla OS will support the apps of the MeeGo Harmattan platform or whether there will be some updates to the MeeGo Harmattan platform which has since its launch been to a status of “partially ignored”. Putting an end to the speculations during an open discussion between the two companies’ representatives, Jolla does not support Nokia N9(or N950) as it is a product of different company and just not possible without any proper rights distribution. Also, Nokia has also stated that they have not gifted any patents to Jolla. All the distribution of rights has been properly guided under their bridge program.
So, for the time being, all you can hope is that the new Jolla OS satisfies the entire MeeGo fan base but you’ll have to buy their new smart phone to admire the new technology.
