MWC 2010: Nokia and Intel announce MeeGo Linux-based device platform

,----[ Quote ]
| I am a big fan of the Maemo 5 platform as 
| you can see in my Definitive Nokia N900 
| Guide so the news that Nokia and Intel are 
| combining Moblin and Maemo to create the 
| MeeGo Linux-based software platform for 
| future mobile computers, notebooks, 
| tablets, and more is quite exciting. MeeGo 
| will also offer the Qt application 
| development environment and allow 
| developers to feature applications in the 
| Ovi Store and Intelâs AppUpSM Center. 
| Looking at the Nokia plot of their 
| operating systems it looks like Maemo is 
| out while MeeGo replaces it moving forward 
| too.


MeeGo time!

| Weâve been busy with our friends @ Intel.
| We decided to expand the relationship we 
| started already last spring. We merge Maemo 
| and Moblin projects into one single project 
| called MeeGo. MeeGo is an open software 
| platform â an operating system â for a wide 
| range of devices. Itâll run on X86 and on 
| Arm based hardware. It will be developed as 
| an open project hosted by the Linux 
| Foundation.

| Third, Intel and Nokia announced they would 
| merge their Moblin and Maemo software 
| projects to create MeeGo, a unified Linux-
| based platform that will run on pocketable 
| mobile computers, netbooks, tablets, media-
| rich smartphones, connected TVs and in-
| vehicle "infotainment" systems, ideally but 
| not exclusively all based on Intel's Atom 
| microprocessor.
| This promises to be the West's answer to 
| LiMo, the Linux Mobile initiative that has 
| drawn support from Asia-Pacific handset 
| makers.


Nokia N900 works with PS3 controller

| It seems like not a week goes by without 
| some clever hacker finding something 
| unusual to do with their Nokia N900, and 
| the device itself is proving more versatile 
| than ever. The latest hack is the ability 
| to hook up a Bluetooth PS3 controller, and 
| play your Nokia N900 games with complete 
| control. Read on after the break to find 
| out moreâ


Nokia N900 review

| Besides the design and the speed, many of 
| its functionalities strongly depend on the 
| phoneâs operating system. Nokia always uses 
| Symbian OS for high-end mobile phones. 
| Symbian enables installing applications, 
| and also managing your agenda and email 
| account is easy and straightforward. 
| Besides Symbian, Nokia also uses a further 
| developed Open Source operating system, the 
| Linux-based Maemo.

| Joikusoft Ltd. today announces the next

| JoikuSpot Mobile 3G HotSpotting to new 
| Linux based Maemo devices from Nokia.



Nokia's N900: a PC in handset clothing

,----[ Quote ]
| Nokia's N900 is, in some respects, the most
| sophisticated mobile handset to date, offering
| a complete, desktop-derived operating system
| in the shape of Maemo 5. Yet, while several
| major operators have picked up the N900, Nokia
| is a long way from fully exploiting the device
| and its software platform in terms of the
| overall user and developer experiences. This
| must be addressed if Maemo is to be
| established as Nokia's high-end platform of
| choice.
