MeeGo to return next month with Jolla phone launch (The H)

The H reports on plans for a MeeGo-based phone.
"The Finnish startup Jolla Ltd says that it has raised €200 million from a number of, currently unnamed, telecommunications companies and that it will be unveiling a MeeGo-based device next month. The funding consortium is reported to include at least one telecom operator, a chipset maker, and device and component manufacturers." Though MeeGo itself is free software, Jolla evidently plans to keep its "well-patented" user interface layer closed and license it to other companies.
