    All these great open-source mobile OS’s, and RIM decided they had to spend 2 years developing their own ):

      actually RIM is the open source QNX operating system for their BB10 devices. QNX was already a great embedded OS, RIM is just tuning it for mobile use

    Why not just build upon meego? at least it has some current brand recognition unlike this sailfish nonsense.

    @HighClassFrenchCricket
    It is build on Meego:
    “The OS, titled Sailfish, will be based on the open-source MeeGo framework but will include Jolla’s proprietary UI design”

    I am looking forward to this, but unless there are swipe gestures like my N9, I think it will be a step back in usability.

  • craig

    why?

    • drone

      Why not?

      Competition is good brotha!

    iOS and Android are of course entrenched.

    WP looks like it is going to make it but that is not certain yet.

    BB10 is up against a wall and while I’m doubtful I do hope they can pull it off.

    Anything is like throwing a hail mary pass in total darkness.

    the N9 isn’t Meego OS btw… its Nokias own Maemo OS version 6 codenamed Harmattan; the “meego” aspect of the Nokia N9 is that it supported Meego 1.2 APIs but the N9 in itself was Maemo and QT in all its glory
