"Moving away from the update and to look at MeeGo and the Nokia N900. Many of you have been asking whether the new MeeGo platform will be supported on the N900 once it’s device-ready. Although Nokia N900 devices are being used for platform development and testing purposes by those involved in the MeeGo project, we don’t have plans for a full scale commercial MeeGo upgrade on the Nokia N900. The reason? It’s really about ensuring that you have the best possible experience designed for the features on your Nokia N900 device. Nokia realises this news may be a disappointment for some, rest assured that Nokia will continue to support the core Maemo software on your Nokia N900, as evidenced by the PR 1.2 (V10.2010.19-1) update available today."

Sorry, guys.

true that, but I believe someone in the community will port it to the N900, someone from Nokia said this "If we don't bring MeeGo to the N900, we expect someone from the Community to bring it to the device" !!

MeeGo 1.0 is expected to be released soon, lets see what does that bring !!

What does MeeGo actually give you that Maemo does not? Do apps for MeeGo run on Maemo PR1.2. If so, why is there this over whelming desire to get Meego? -just curious

What absolute ******** rationale. This is the official line? That may have held true with the 770, where the hardware was truly a limiting factor, but the N900 has absolute state of the art hardware stats comparable to anything released on the market today or in the near future.

"Ensuring the best possible user experience" has become the blanket term used by uncreative PR flacks when they are s***ing someone over.

Let's remember that this all about user experience. Polishing software is a lot of work. Polishing each application for resistive screen (as good as it is) is not trivial considering that we are making the UI for our Nokia product on MeeGo for capacitive screens as we have said already in Maemo Summit 2009.

Good and bad news in one day. I don't know how I should feel right now.

But for now, I'll be happy and will update to 1.2 soon.
