All things Digital claims that Ari Jaaksi, the former Head of Meego and Maemo is joining Palm as Senior Vice President of webOS. He’s expected to start in November. Ari Jaaksi resigned from Nokia earlier this month for personal reasons. I guess now we know what those reasons are.
Maemo is the OS running on the Nokia N900. It was released late last year. Meego is the new platform Nokia has co-developed with Intel. We’re expecting to see Nokia’s Meego device, the Nokia N9, by the end of 2010 or early 2011.
There’s no official confirmation yet, but All things Digital cites sources close to Palm. On a sidenote, Ari Jaaksi’s blog and twitter account haven’t been updated yet. The profile still says, “I run MeeGo and Maemo @ Nokia.”
