Nokia isn't dead yet. Team MeeGo has just announced "Day 1" of the MeeGo Handset user experience project and included some screenshots of the MeeGo 1.1 interface. Nokia is planing on using MeeGo on Nseries phones, among other devices and we can't wait - it looks great - more screenshots here. Developers can now download a preview 'MeeGo Handset Day 1' image and browse the source code.

From the MeeGo blog: "This code is being actively developed as MeeGo 1.1, which is scheduled for release in October. The MeeGo UI team has also been busy creating the handset reference user experience and preparing the MeeGo UI design principles and interaction guidelines. This milestone marks the completion of the merger of Moblin and Maemo as major architecture decisions and technical selections have been determined. Today, we are also opening the MeeGo Build Infrastructure."
