With the MeeGo devices scheduled to launch before end of 2010, Nokia looks to have a final fighting chance to stay in the competition against Apple and the other platforms. However, bad news continue to hit the Finnish company as Ari Jaaksi, head of Nokia MeeGo platform, has also resigned.

MeeGo was initially announced at Mobile World Congress in February, as the merger of Nokia’s Maemo and Intel’s Moblin software. While it has been a long wait before we see the products based on the new platform, Nokia mentions that the products will be launched before end of 2010.

Unfortunately, it seems the head of Nokia Meego software platform, Ari Jaaksi, will not be with the company by the time of the MeeGo product launch, as he has recently resigned.

There has been a few changes in the Finnish company: former Nokia CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo has been replaced by Stephen Elop, while Anssi Vanjoki, Nokia’s executive vice president in charge of the Mobile Solutions unit, has also resigned because the CEO position wasn’t offered to him. And now this.
