"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."
