Nokia's MeeGo Devices VP, Ari Jaaksi, has become the latest high-ranking exec from the Finnish company to resign.  According to Talous Sanomat, Jaaksi chose to leave the firm (rather than being pushed like OPK) and not over complaints with new Nokia CEO Stephen Elop.  Meanwhile Nokia insists it is still on course to release a MeeGo device by Christmas 2010.

Jaaksi was partly responsible for the development of Maemo, the Linux-based platform that formed part of the basis of the MeeGo co-project with Intel.  He will be replaced by Alberto Torres, who until now was EVP of Nokia Solutions.
