Nokia gives project 'Meltemi' the boot
| by Roydon Cerejo |
Sources close to All Things D have confirmed that the Nokia will be abandoning project ‘Meltemi’, a low-cost, Linux-based OS that would eventually replace S40 and provide even budget handsets with smartphone capabilities. The OS was never publicly confirmed nor denied by Nokia, however Stephen Elop, Nokia CEO, did say that they were ending some projects after the recent restructuring of the company. Meltemi was supposed to a part of the MeeGo development program, but since their ceasing active work on that as well, we really don’t think Meltemi has any chance. Nokia’s focus right now is on how to build the company backup for the modern times were touchscreen Android phones are dominating the market. They are relying heavily on Microsoft to deliver on the software part as Tango could be one of the hooks needed to pull in the masses. Their high-end phones based on Apollo have yet to prove themselves as Nokia has the hardware, it’s just the software that’s lacking.
Closing all doors
