He goes, not Meego

HIS EMAIL address just bounces back messages suggesting that Nokia's Meego vice president Ari Jaaski has already left the building permanently.

While the Finnish handset maker confirmed to The INQUIRER that Jaaski had been the Meego vice president, no one there could tell us if he had left for good because the press office staff had already gone home. Those continental working hours, just too good to be true.

Finnish newspaper Talous Sanoma reported the departure of Jaaski and his email accounts inability to accept emails could be a big clue in confirming that.

While Intel talked up Meego, a collaboration between Nokia and Chipzilla, at its Intel Developer Forum, the OS was strangely absent from Nokia World.

The OS has been touted for all manner of mobile devices from phones to tablets to "common platforms" for wireless home networks of entertainment and what not.

Nokia's EVP of marketing Niklas Savander told the audience at his company's big event that he had nothing to say about the OS until later this year. Now we know why. µ
