Big Ideas – Beauty, simplicity, openness, Jolla is made up of a lot of the developers from Nokia who worked on Meego and Maemo before that, this is the spiritual successor the the Nokia N-Series Internet Tablets, like the N-770, the N-800, the N-810, and the N-900. Maemo offered a lot of the Desktop Linux apps on your phone/device years ago. (I personally use a N-900 running Maemo as my only phone, and it has OpenOffice.org on it.)
What do you think? Do any of these catch your attention? Do you think we’ll be more than a 2-horse race in 2014?
