| Nokia has since teamed up with Intel in an 
| effort to build an industry-standard Linux 
| platform called Meego that will work across 
| a wide range of mobile form factors and 
| support both the ARM and x86 architectures. 
| MeeGo incorporates some of the best 
| elements of Maemo and Intel's Moblin 
| netbook operating system. The path towards 
| converging Maemo and Moblin is still at a 
| relatively early stage, but a significant 
| portion of the source code is already 
| available.


MeeGo joins the Open Source league

| Set to hit this fall, Kumar offers little 
| else in the way of details. However, he 
| does allude to Nokia's partnership with 
| Intel and the company's new MeeGo operating 
| system that's based off of Linux. Announced 
| in mid-February, the OS is a mash-up of 
| Nokia's Maemo OS and Intel's Moblin. Nokia 
| and Intel have said the open source OS will 
| run on both smartphones and netbooks, with 
| support for ARM architecture and Intel's 
| line of Atom CPUs.

Android vs Maemo - Hands on Review

,----[ Quote ]
| There is no doubt that Linux will be the
| dominant player in the mobile market by
| the end of 2010. This is namely thanks to
| Google's Android OS, which has been
| appearing on more handsets than I can
| count the past few months. Android however
| is not the only mobile Linux operating
| system (however it is easily the most
| popular) that exists. I have done more
| than a few posts about my Nokia N900,
| which is another mobile device that runs a
| variation of Linux known as Maemo.
