Ari Jaaksi’s new job confirmed

Reuters have officially confirmed that Ari Jaaski former head of Mobile Browser development as well as being the man in charge of the Maemo and MeeGo OS’s has been hired by HP as Senior Vice President of WebOS. A pretty damn senior position don’t you think. Considering the recent acquiry of Peter Skillman by Nokia, one could say this was a straight swap in a sense.  He could be one of the shrewdest acquisition HP has made. I wish him luck in his new position and hope that his departure doesn’t negatively affect MeeGo’s progress, direction or it’s greatness.

      He was the head of mobile browser development at Nokia, i.e the webkit based browser that we used to use back in S60 V3.0 and possibly had a hand in MicroB on the N900 as well.

      He was also the head of the Maemo and MeeGo projects.

    I guess it was part of the deal between Nokia and HP 😉
