Although Nokia has no plans to make future MeeGo smartphones, they’re staying true to their word of continuing software support for the N9, preparing a second major OS update for the platform.
Included in the update is over 3,000 software fixes, additional features and improvements. Rumour has it a video calling app will be included, along with application folders on the home screen, an updated camera interface and gallery.

Nokia’s director of applications for MeeGo, Sotiris Makyglannis, hinted on Twitter that the software could hit N9’s by February, and continued to offer support with a “small but valuable” update to 1.3. Even though Nokia’s attention is distracted by Windows Phone, it’s good to see the company not forsake its loyal customers by still showing MeeGo some love.
