Nokia introduced its first MeeGo smartphone the N9 to the world this week, as enthusiasts praised the device’s features and sleek appearance.
Unfortunately for MeeGo fans this will be your first and last chance to take a ride on the MeeGo train with Nokia. Intel has acknowledged they will continue to produce MeeGo even without Nokia.
During an interview, Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop confirmed the N9 to be the only MeeGo phone they will produce. Nokia will be focusing 100% of their efforts into the Windows Phone OS, regardless of how successful the N9 yields to be.
The decision could place significant strain on future N9 sales, as there is minimal incentive for developers to support an OS which will begin and end with the N9.
