"Nokia Oyj will use Linux MeeGo software in its
flagship N-series smartphones, hoping the new platform will give it
a better chance to battle rivals such as Apple Inc and Google Inc.
"The N-series has been Nokia's crown jewel for years and it
dominated the smartphone market before Apple's iPhone was
introduced in 2007.
"Nokia's next smartphone, the N8, will be the last N-series
phone running Symbian software.
""Going forward, N-series devices will be based on MeeGo," said
Nokia spokesman Doug Dawson."
