A report from the Wall Street Journal reveals that Nokia is working on a Linux-based operating system (OS), codenamed "Meltemi" for its range of feature phones.

According to TechCrunch, the "Meltemi" OS is different from Samsung's in-house Bada OS or the recently announced Tizen platform. It is not meant to be a catch-all OS and its aim is to strengthen Nokia's range of feature phones.

It is good to see Nokia making plans to improve the user experience on its feature phones. However, we are not certain on how the "Meltemi" OS can fend off fierce competition from the open-source Google Android OS that is adopted by many phone makers in their mass market smartphones.
