|Nokia's Meego aimed to compete with high-end rivals|
Friday, 25 June 2010 13:57
Nokia will be using Meego software for the production of future mobile phones, in a bid to compete with high-end mobile rivals like Apple and Google.
Nokia's latest N8 will be the last mobile of the N-series to use Symbian software, despite their years of investment in the product. The Symbian software will be replaced with Linux-based Meego software.
Meego is an operating system launched earlier this year which fuses Intel's Moblin and Nokia's Maemo cellphone.
The move to Meego signifies Nokia's attempt to compete with other high-end mobile competitors. Google's Android phones and Apple's iPhone, which stem from personal computers herald a new mobile age, which has left mobile-rooted software like Symbian behind.
With Meego, Nokia will be attempting to combine computing and communication to produce a high-end mobile so that they may regain clout in the modern mobile market.
