Earlier today we heard Nokia’s new CEO, Stephen Elop describe the company as ‘standing on a burning platform‘ in the leaked memo, Elop also mentioned that they would probably only produce one MeeGo device in 2011.
We were expecting Nokia to announce their first MeeGo device, the Nokia N9 at Mobile World Congress 2011, next week, although now it looks like the deceive has been killed off according to the guys over at Engadget.
So where does this leave Nokia? If they are killing off their first MeeGo device, and Elop has said that one will launch in 2011, it will probably be a while before we see a MeeGo device launch.
There have been rumors before that Nokia will start producing Windows Phone 7 devices, but is this enough to jump start their failing smartphone business.
It will be interesting to see what Nokia’s smartphone strategy is when it is unveiled later this week, could we possibly see Android devices from Nokia, although they have previously said that they wouldn’t build devices for Google’s Android platform.
