Necuno Solutions and Nemo Mobile announce community collaboration, bringing Nemo Mobile on Necuno Mobile.
Nemo Mobile is the FOSS operating system based on Mer-core. Mer-core was started as a fork from Nokia MeeGo operating system and is now utilized by SailfishOS mobile operating system and AsteroidOS, the open-source operating system for smartwatches. Nemo Mobile uses the same proven and stable core and provides a unique swipe-based UX on top of it, backed by an open-source community. Although early in development Nemo Mobile is a promising and upcoming FOSS effort to bring freedom back in mobile.
Necuno Solutions is introducing a truly open source and secure mobile hardware platform called Necuno Mobile. Open source mobile communities have been looking forward to a device like this for a long time, because a device so uniquely open has never been made before. Necuno Mobile works perfectly as a base to build truly open and bleeding edge FOSS projects on. It is the first step in a long journey of bringing users back in control of their mobile devices.
“Though currently under heavy development from few dedicated developers, Nemo Mobile seems to have great potential to be a succesful FOSS mobile operating system. As it is based on the same open-source base as SailfishOS it has a strong and working core. We welcome Nemo Mobile to use our secure hardware platform to push their operating system forward.” - Tanja Drca, Chief Communications Officer at Necuno Solutions
“Nemo Mobile is proud to join along with other free mobile operating system projects to help Necuno Software products reach its full potential. Nemo Mobile has been successfully ported to many devices already but a truly open source hardware mobile product is an excellent addition to them.” - Aleksi Suomalainen, Nemo Mobile Developer
Nemo Mobile was originally made from the MeeGo Community edition and has since been made as a distribution for mobile devices in general. Glacier UI is the current UI project which aims on bringing a completely community driven user interface development effort to the hands of its users.
Necuno Solutions is a company dedicated to bringing freedom to the mobile world, starting with a secure open source mobile device. Necuno Solutions has roots in the open source communities and, while their first device is targeted towards enterprises, the Necuno Mobile also works as an open source hardware platform for communities to build upon.
