Hope that includes N900 and N9.

Joking.

First let them do some profit on popular Android devices, than let them do whatever their fantasies go, including Maemo/Meego development :-P

Unless the N stands for Nostalgia, not sure this will go anywhere if these are not built to the same specs, fit and finish as before.

They would have a hard time selling the devices on nostalgia alone. The market, the players, the state-of-the-art has changed so much since their demise. They would have to make very special (and possibly niche) devices to be able to capitalise on their nostalgic value.

This would be great but they went with the sale of Nokia's phone division to MicroSoft.

Source for that? My friend who was working in Harmattan team said opposite. Maemo, MeeGo(harmattan) and design of (at least) N9 stayed

If they are smart they published an alternativ Meego/Sailfish FW and see how they are selling. The world doesnt wait for an another Android.

Maybe, if Trump made "America great again", Europe are looking for an Mobile with no American SW/HW.

That and only that can be the point to buy a Nokia again.

Some of us are dreaming about Meego resurrection, but it is unlikely it will happen. BTW - while I appreciate all hard work that was put in Sailfish creation I wonder why nobody hasn't tried to port to any device out there and further develop Meego? It has been available as free source code AFAIR? Or did it include some proprietary code that Nokia wouldn't want to disclose anyone?

Meego is not under GPL. Is still property from Nokia (hopefull) or Microsoft (so its dead)
