After CNET article, Nokia say "door is not closed" to MeeGo on N900
In a CNET article, an unnamed source at Nokia said that "Maemo on the N900 is not upgradeable to MeeGo". CNET took this as proof that the N900 will not run MeeGo, causing members of the Maemo community - who remembered quotes that MeeGo would be running on the N900 by "the end of the month" from members of the MeeGo Technical Steering Group - to dismiss the whole article. Engadget took the quote to their contacts at Nokia who, on the record, said the "the door is not closed" with regard to MeeGo on the N900 -- a final decision has not been made. Of course, a developer distribution running on the N900 is a long way from having a day-to-day usable replacement for Maemo 5. At this point, we simply do not know.
