| Next: Enter the latest addition to the 
| touchscreen devices set to da-beau in 2010: 
| MeeGo. In a joint effort between the Intel 
| and Nokia companies. MeeGo, a Linux based 
| operating system, is going to be targeted 
| at both ARM and x86 based devices (despite 
| the former of the two not being made by 
| Intel). While MeeGo is still in the very 
| preliminary stages of development, other 
| Linux-based touchscreen-orientated 
| operating systems, such as Android and 
| Maemo, have shown us that the Linux 
| platform is more than capable of 
| functioning on such devices in an elegant 
| manner. With backing from such large 
| companies MeeGo is going to be hard-pressed 
| to not get at least some publicity.

| Moblin netbook operating system on their 
| latest models and showing them off at trade 
| shows like Mobile World Congress and CES.
