Hands-on with Jolla, the Nokia that could have been

[What if Nokia hadn't abandoned MeeGo in favor of Windows Phone?]

Vlad Savov -- "The Nokia N9 deserved better. Introduced in the middle of 2011, Nokia's one and only MeeGo phone offered a refreshing mix of original software and striking new hardware. It was, however, quickly swept aside by the Finnish company's grander Windows Phone plans, which took precedence over the promising but unsupported MeeGo platform."

"Jolla, a splinter group of former Nokia employees, has taken on the task of keeping the N9's legacy going. It's a project that immediately engenders goodwill through its refusal to simply abandon all that good work in favor of economic practicalities — but that same bravado is also what makes it distinctly utopian. A small and unheralded startup aims to succeed where the formerly giant and resource-rich Nokia didn't dare tread."
