Nokia says there might be another MeeGo Device after the Nokia N9

Nokia softens comments about Nokia N9 being the first and the last Nokia MeeGo device.

Nokia unveiled the MeeGo running Nokia N9 and it got a warm welcome from the tech press. Nokia let us know through its CEO Stephen Elop that the Nokia N9 is the first and last MeeGo device. Some even think Nokia will never launch it at all. Now TechRadar received a clarification from Nokia that softens this stance. Nokia says that they likely will not give up on a strong consumer product. Early signs suggest that the N9 will be such a device.

This is maybe good news, but also could just be PR to lure you into buying the N9, despite knowing the fate of MeeGo at Nokia.

On the plus side. MeeGo itself seems to survive and is coming to the market on Netbooks. The Asus Eee PC X101 is supposed to already come next month.

The body of the Nokia N9 is precision-machined from a single piece of polycarbonate and flows seamlessly into beautiful curved glass. The laminated deep black display means that the user interface just floats on the surface of the product. Other feature highlights of the Nokia N9 include 3.9-inch OLED screen, 8MP camera, turn-by-turn navigation, 16:9 video display, Dolby Digital Plus, NFC and 16GB/64GB storage. The Nokia N9 is scheduled to be in stores later this year, with availability and local pricing to be announced closer to the sales start.
