Nokia's customized MeeGo shows in video
Nokia's implementation of MeeGo could be heavily customized if a video demo (below) reflects the company's goals. Instead of clinging to the stock interface, it would use an interface much more streamlined for phones with collapsible contact items and a very straightforward but full-featured interface for the app menu, media playback and others. A jump to the Ovi Store leaves little doubt that the preview is Nokia's, a detail which is also borne out by a Nokia copyright in the corner.
The OS is due to reach shipping hardware by the end of the year and could make its first debut on the Nokia N9, a tilting QWERTY slider that would take the place of the N900 but with a much wider release. Nokia has previously hinted that the N8 would be the end of Nseries Symbian phones and that all future models would use some form of MeeGo. Symbian will still exist in most other phone lines.
