A group of former Nokia employees have banded together and formed a new company called Jolla Mobile. Jolla Mobile's goal will be to take the work that Nokia did with Meego — the mobile platform that is part Moblin, part Maemo, and ended up in the Nokia N9 — and bring new smartphones to market with the operating system. The Jolla team is formed by "directors, engineers, and core professionals" from Nokia's former Meego N9 team. According to Jolla, the company has been at work on the operating system since late 2011, and has added Mer Core and Qt to evolve Meego, as well as a brand new user interface. The company, which will be a private business funded in part by venture capitalists, is based in Finland and is looking to hire more professionals to help bring Meego handsets to the market. Jolla didn't say when it expects Meego devices to go on sale.
