MeeGo Smartphones and Operating System Find a New Life in Jolla Ltd.
Jolla Ltd. is an independent Finland based smartphone product company which
continues the excellent work that Nokia started with MeeGo. The Jolla team is
formed by directors and core professionals from Nokia’s MeeGo N9 organisation,
together with some of the best minds working on MeeGo in the communities.
Jussi Hurmola, CEO Jolla Ltd.: “Nokia created something wonderful – the world’s
best smartphone product. It deserves to be continued, and we will do that together
with all the bright and gifted people contributing to the MeeGo success story.”
Jolla Ltd. will design, develop and sell new MeeGo based smartphones. Together
with international private investors and partners, a new smartphone using this
MeeGo based OS will be revealed later this year.
Jolla Ltd. has been developing a new smartphone product and the OS since the end
of 2011. The OS has evolved from MeeGo OS using Mer Core and Qt with Jolla
technology including its own brand new UI.

If they are trying to make a tablet (4in-10in)... this could be ambitious.
I think they should use a current product and expand on it, something like the Ainol Novo7 Elf2 would make the prime kickstarter:
~ $99
- Decent quality 1024x600 LCD
- 1.4GHz Dual-Cortex A9 (40nm)
- Mali-400 (dualcore gpu)
- 1GB DDR3 RAM
- 16GB NAND, microSD, microHDMI, microUSB-HOST
- Wifi bgn, BT, 2MP camera, gyro, speaker, mic, headset
- 3,700mAh (with dedicated charge port)

Build on top of something like that, like Vivaldi Tablet, and actually roll out firmware/devices to developers.
Perhaps merge efforts with the teams from Vivaldi, MeeGo-Veterans and ARMopenSUSE.

This is just awesome - I should ask someone to kick me, to be sure that I am not dreaming!

I hope the community can help them a lot, that WE are asked, involved, that it will be a (bit) community driven project! I wish them so much, luck and success! I'll do what ever is possible to support this fantastic idea/project/company!

Sounds a bit too phone-oriented for my taste, but if they can find the courage to respect my freedom (no aegis or other tivoization rubish) and privacy I'll probably give them money anyway.

Company Size 51-200 employees
This seems doable; stay tuned. I would support something from Europe.

Hopefully it's Mer, Qt 5 and a fantastic UI that's as close to N9 Swipe as they can get away with (or license?).

I hope that they have graphic and industrial designers that will create something as groundbreaking and stand-out as the N9 that will elevate them from device(s?) that developers will love to something that will entice average consumers as well.

And hopefully keep a developer story similar enough to N9/Symbian/BB10 to get some cross-pollination of Qt apps?
