PhoneReport reports that the Meego-powered Nokia N9 may not be dead after all, but may just be getting a brain transplant.
According to a inside tipster the device crashed all the time running Meego, but when Windows phone 7 was tried on it ran like a dream.
It was apparently this demonstration which impressed Nokia enough to dump the Linux-based OS for Windows phone 7.
Despite Windows phone 7 running well on the handset, in the end devices from Nokia running the OS may have to wait for a completely new handset, which would take some months unfortunately.
Both Nokia and Microsoft are however committed to taking on Android, and their collaboration is now only waiting its official announcement soon.
