Ex-Nokia MeeGo team members form start-up to build MeeGo hardware

A group of former Nokia employees who worked in the MeeGo development team have formed a start-up called ‘Jolla’ where they plan to build smartphones for the abandoned but critically acclaimed MeeGo operating system Nokia had employed on the N9. Marc Dillon who worked in Nokia for almost 11 years and most recently was the principle engineer behind the MeeGo OS will lead the company.

After Nokia’s unceremonious abandonment of the platform for Windows Phone, we have seen MeeGo being used as an open source OS in Asus Netbooks and more recently we have seen Samsung merge its Bada OS with MeeGo with the help of Intel, to build a new platform called Tizen.

It will be interesting to see the end result of this new venture and we are curious to see if a new start-up like Jolla can bring the fledgling OS to mainstream and at same time build quality hardware.
