"Meltemi" Set To Blow On Nokia Low-End Phones


Nokia is shifting its programming efforts toward creating software for its low-end phones, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday citing according to people familiar with the matter.

The project is a Linux-based operating system code-named "Meltemi", the Greek word for summer winds that blow across the Aegean Sea. I

For Nokia, the low-end mobile-phone business accounted for about 47% of the company's device-and-services sales in the second quarter.

In 2003, Nokia started work in 2003 on its own high-end operating system, called Maemo, but the effort faced setbacks inside Nokia due to management changes and shifts in strategy. Last year, Nokia said it would combine Maemo with software from Intel to create a next-generation operating system called MeeGo. But in February, Nokia decided to make smartphones using Microsoft's software, ending Nokia's Intel partnership.

On Wednesday, Intel announced support for a new operating system, called Tizen.
