The Finnish giant Nokia is currently on a sinking ship Symbian. In the last year, Symbian was the most criticized mobile OS despite its market leadership. Many Nokia loyalists all over the world are eagerly waiting for the next generation of Maemo to arrive, namely MeeGo. Now, the folks over at GSMArena have dug out a picture from the Mobile-Review forums of what is apparently a handset running on MeeGo.
The handset shown above in the picture can very well be the Nokia N9 which will hopefully be announced by Nokia at the upcoming MWC (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona. From the leaked pictures, the screen size of the handset looks to be around 4-inches. The handset also sports a 3-axis gyroscope along with an accelerometer. A few days ago, rumored specs of the N9 popped up on the Internet suggesting that the handset will be packing a 1.2 GHz Intel processor.
Hopefully, Nokia will announce a MeeGo based handset at the MWC thus killing all these rumors. In fact, Nokia must announce a MeeGo based handset at MWC. Right now, most Nokia loyalists have pinned their hopes on the MeeGo and delaying the launch of a handset running MeeGo will not help Nokia at all. MeeGo is also being touted by some as the comeback vehicle for Nokia.
Only time will tell whether MeeGo will help kill all the negativity surrounding Nokia/Symbian or not.
