Nokia: Maemo Phones Will Be Ours, Not the Operators'
Sep 9, 2009, 9:42 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Nokia has indicated that it will not customize its high-end Maemo Linux handsets to suit carrier needs. With Nokia's S60 and Series 40 phones, it allows carriers to customize the user experience and add carrier-branded software and services. This will not be the case with Maemo phones, such as the recently announced N900. Nokia said that it will follow the footsteps of Apple and Google, which David Rivas, Nokia's vice president for devices R&D, told Reuters, "are a whole lot less about providing customization to the operators and a whole lot more about providing a really cool, compelling value proposition to the end-consumer." Nokia also noted that reducing carrier customization will help it save money and get products to market faster.
