Necuno Solutions and Maemo Leste collaboration

Helsinki on December 07, 2018

Necuno Solutions and Maemo Leste announce community collaboration, bringing Maemo Leste on Necuno Mobile.

Maemo Leste has taken great task of continuing the legacy of Maemo, which is a platform developed by Nokia in collaboration with many open source giants such as the Linux kernel, Debian , GNOME , and many more.

The Maemo operating system was originally developed by Nokia for its line of internet tablets as early as 2005. After Nokia moved from Maemo to other mobile operating systems, the community picked up maintainership of Maemo to this day.

Maemo Leste aims to provide a free Maemo experience on todays mobile phones and tablets. Based on Devuan Ascii (Debian Stretch), running on Linux (mainline-based) kernels and free of anything Android, Maemo Leste is yet another great operating system choice to further develop and grow alongside other communities in the mobile FOSS ecosystem. Together Maemo Leste and Necuno Mobile have the chance to bring the Maemo experience to extreme information security supporting hardware platform.

Necuno Solutions has committed in boosting growth of privacy and security focused mobile ecosystem, from hardware to software, with open source as its driving force. Collaborations with communities, like Maemo Leste, are the key of transforming this idea to reality. The ultimate goal of our efforts is to provide an open source mobile device with rich app ecosystem and where the user is in control and the device is verifiably secure all the way from hardware to the applications. Everything starts with small incremental steps and Necuno Mobile is the first one.

“Maemo Leste is a inspiring effort of bringing the proven user experience of Nokias Maemo Operating System to this day. It is a true FOSS Linux based operating system and aligns perfectly with our values. Maemo Leste is still early on in development and most suitable for developers to work on, but looks promising and hopefully we can bring more life in to the community by providing a common base to build upon.” - Tanja Drca, Chief Communications Officer at Necuno Solutions

“The Necuno Mobile hardware platform developed by Necuno Solutions seems like a very promising platform for developers and users alike who care about free software, security and privacy. Maemo Leste aims to become a usable and mature mobile operating system through collaboration with the Necuno Mobile platform.” - Merlijn Wajer & Ivan Jelinčić, Maemo Leste Developers

About Us

Necunos provides the most transparent and secure complete mobile solution.

We started with creating a secure communications software but realized that it wont be secure if its running on Android or iOS where data collection and backdoor access is inevitable. We decided to create our own Linux-based up-to-date independent operating system that would respect peoples privacy and provide them with transparent security. Once we got deep into the hardware and operating systems we noticed we couldn't trust the hardware running our operating system. There are too many unknowns and too many closed firmwares running in there. We decided to go and create the most transparent and clean mobile hardware and software stack solution where the user can be absolutely sure that his communications are secured and privacy respected.
