Jolla, the Finland-based start-up formed by ex-Nokia employees working on the MeeGo operating system, has reportedly received around 200 million Euros ($258 million) in funding, and is all set to unveil its flagship phone running on the MeeGo platform next month, as per a Wall Street Journal report.
The new version of the MeeGo operating system will not be the same as the MeeGo Harmattan OS that runs on the Nokia N9 though; that version of the MeeGo OS was developed by and has components that are still owned by Nokia. The new version of the OS has evolved from MeeGo OS using Mer Core and Qt with Jolla technology, including its own brand new UI.

Hurmola was recently quoted in the media as saying that MeeGo would be getting a software store where users could get apps for their devices. Hurmola said that it is clear that Jolla’s next phone needs an ecosystem for third party apps.
