Nokia is building new Linux based mobile operating system codename Meltemi

Nokia is working on a secret project named as Meltemi.

Rumours say that it is Linux based mobile operating system for Nokia Series 40 phones for emerging markets.

Meltemi will be used to power phones with low price. Meltemi will replace Symbian and Nokia will continue working on Windows based phones with Microsoft.

Meltemi is a Greek word for dry summer winds from the north.

Nokia is always taking steps to improve their mobile phones since Symbian failed against Android and iOS.

In short, Meltemi is Nokia’s new plan of defence in the budget market, a S40 replacement.
