So what did the MeeGo team do? They left to start Jolla, a brand spanking new company that will unveil their new operating system, codenamed Sailfish, next month in Helsinki, Finland.

Dual ecosystem phones coming soon from Jolla

by: nathanAugust 20, 2012
This is a story about Jolla. It may sound like an infamous Linux distribution, but it's not. It's a Helsinki (Nokia ground zero!) based startup and it reminds us a little of Saygus. Jolla wants to use MeeGo, Nokia's orphaned ecosystem and deliver the world an Android-friendly smartphone.
