Nokia’s Ari Jaaksi: MeeGo Home Now

departuresThe senior executive exodus at Nokia continues. Ari Jaaksi has resigned as head of the company’s MeeGo division, leaving Nokia as it prepares to launch handsets based on the new platform.

Jaaksi, who says he’s stepping down for personal reasons, will leave Nokia (NOK) in a couple of weeks. His departure follows those of Anssi Vanjoki, head of Nokia Mobile Solutions, and former CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo.

How will this affect the launch of the first Nokia devices powered by MeeGo, the next-generation mobile OS the company is developing in partnership with Intel (INTC)? Not at all, says Nokia, which tells Engadget that an “update on MeeGo” will be announced before next year. Of course, as the gadget site aptly notes, there’s a hell of a lot of wiggle room in that phrase, and there are rumors circulating that the latest MeeGo build leaves a lot to be desired.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
