Meego is the natural evolutionary successor to Windows and iOS.
It cannot be stopped.
Meego is the future for mobile computing and more. Now with Jolla, there is light for the future and for all users and developers alike.
The Jolla team is making aggressive statements regarding their MeeGo development. CEO Jussi Hurmola stated that they will be revealing a MeeGo-based smartphone later this year. They have been working on this project and the OS since the end of 2011.
