    This is such a shame. I was really looking forward to a bunch of hot, new MeeGo smartphones. Android is great and all, but the problem with it is that it uses java. MeeGo doesn't need java. I was hoping that MeeGo would help liberate the linux smartphone from java.

    I'd go with "Rt" (which you can pronounce like "art" if you feel like it). But I'm not a marketing guy or a KDE guy, so whatever.

    Yeah sure I use their drivers and will continue to recommend their hardware because of it, but they won't do a good job on anything 'large'.

    What about 'Kt'?
    Easy to advertise with a nice woman.

    Looks like they're better than you think:

    Even includes the specialised tablet UX they were developing.

    My response, for what it is worth, is that while this is definitely not a result i ever wanted to see, it is worth remembering that Nokia will still be investing >around< half a billion annually in the broader MeeGo ecosystem after this change in direction.

    While MeeGo is not now going to become one of the 'big-three' or the lead Nokia platform, it probably does have a healthy a viable future as a niche platform.
