Check out Harri Hakulinen's blog which contains some mention about it,
I think it was the source for the news spread around the news sites:

I guess PR1.3 kernel will support kexec and then we can use bootmenu
to run MeeGo from our SD card similar to NITDroid installation - yeah,
maybe we can have tri-boot maemo/meego/nitdroid :) :) :)

I seriously doubt it. And N900 as "flagship" is a title given it by
us, not by Nokia. I would say flagship was N97 and now N8. Some blog
even said recently that the first MeeGo-Harmattan device won't have
turn-by-turn navigation in Maps, either.

Of course Nokia won't officially tell anyone anything about future
plans with their closed software (Except that MeeGo-Harmattan won't
officially be supported on N900...) so all we can do is guess and wait
and hope.
