Nokia Aborts First MeeGo Phone Before Launch

Poor Nokia; yesterday their new boss sends a scathingly honest state-of-the-union email, today Reuters reports that the company has killed off the first phone that was going to harness the power of its MeeGo platform. We hardly knew ye, N9-00. In fact, we didn't know you at all.

That's not a complete white flag on the mash-up OS Nokia co-developed with Intel; there could be a new first MeeGo handset announced later this week. Just in time to be canceled for the holidays! [Reuters]

I wonder if that burning platform memo hinted at them switching to Android or WP7. The N8 with the same hardware but faster processor and one of those two OS's would be a win.
