Nokia, Intel demo MeeGo at IDF

,----[ Quote ]
| Nokia and Intel have demoed their upcoming 
| MeeGo platform co-venture at the Intel 
| Developer Forum 2010 in Beijing, showing 
| not only how the platform is being 
| developed for netbooks, TVs and 
| smartphones, but how the system will be 
| able to cooperate from device to device. In 
| the demo video (below) an Intel 
| spokesperson plays a video streaming to a 
| netbook on a TV and a smartphone at the 
| same time.

| MeeGo is a joint venture with Nokia and is 
| built on their Moblin and Maemo mobile 
| OSes. Unlike rival operating systems, MeeGo 
| is intended to "support multiple hardware 
| architectures across the broadest range of 
| device segments, including pocketable 
| mobile computers, netbooks, tablets, 
| mediaphones, connected TVs and in-vehicle 
| infotainment systems."

Linux-based MeeGo mobile OS makes its netbook debut

| The open-source offspring of Intelâs Moblin 
| and Nokiaâs Maemo gets its first public 
| outing running an an Atom netbook, as well 
| as a smartphone and a TV set...


MeeGo May Go Somewhere With New Partners and Updates

,----[ Quote ]
| MeeGo is a Linux-based operating system for 
| portable devices. Itâs the product of a 
| partnership between Nokia and Intel which 
| brings together Nokiaâs Maemo and Intelâs 
| Moblin environment. This operating system 
| could power your smart phone and your 
| netbook as well as other devices you might 
| not consider like a vehicle or an embedded 
| system.


Comment: Has Intel's Android move wrong-footed Microsoft?

,----[ Quote ]
| The news that Intel has got the Android 
| mobile software stack from Google running 
| on Atom-based smartphone designs as well as 
| being important in its own right, could 
| also be a sign of a break in the log-jam 
| over Big Windows and ARM processors.
| Maybe Intel has wrong-footed Microsoft with 
| the move, or maybe Intel is responding to a 
| Microsoft move that has not yet gone 
| public. But what does Intel and Google 
| Android have to do with Microsoft's full 
| Windows operating system and ARM, I hear 
| you ask?
| Well some observers have assumed that there 
| was tacit understanding between Intel and 
| Microsoft to the effect that Intel wouldn't 
| support the Microsoft-threatening Android 
| software as long as Microsoft wouldn't 
| expand its support of the Intel-threatening 
| ARM.



MeeGo Linux coming to netbooks, smartbooks soon

,----[ Quote ]
| The folks behind the MeeGo Linux project
| launched the first public beta version of
| the operating system recently. But thatâs
| just the first step. MeeGo is backed by
| Intel and Nokia, and they have big plans
| to get the paltform on all sorts of
| devices including netbooks and smartphones
| soon.
| The netbook version of MeeGo doesnât look
| like anything all that new if youâve been
| following Moblin Linux for a while. MeeGo
| was born out of the merger of the Moblin
| and Maemo projects. And it looks like the
| UI is mostly Moblin-based, with a heavy
| dose of home screen widgets for checking
| your email, seeing status updates from
| your contacts, and launching apps. There
| are tabs along the top of the user
| interface for launching different zones,
| including a people zone (for your
| contacts) or a media zone for playing
| music and movies.


MeeGo partners reveal strong China focus

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux Foundation (LF) announced 27
| partners in the MeeGo mobile Linux
| project, which is principally backed by
| Intel and Nokia. Companies that have
| pledged support for the MeeGo merger of
| the Linux-based Moblin and Maemo
| distributions include device vendors Acer
| and Asus, set-top maker Amino, automotive
| firm BMW Group, and a number of software
| firms based in China.


MeeGo Developer Community Grows as Software Ecosystem Support Broadens


MeeGo project garners new industry participants

,----[ Quote ]
| MeeGo, the unification of Intelâs Moblin
| and Nokiaâs Maemo, and shepherded by the
| Linux Foundation, is getting a lot of
| support from a variety of companies. From
| hardware developers to software houses,
| from games to automotive to embedded
| solutions providers, the recent
| announcement indicates an influx of
| potentially millions of developer-hours.
| Some of the new participants are no-
| brainers, while some are a bit surprising.
| Whether itâs an effort to hedge bets for or
| against Android, or just widening the
| market potential for their products, the
| end result is hopefully a better MeeGo,
| which is better for you and me.


Chromium ported to N900

,----[ Quote ]
| As reported over on Engadget, the move is
| an unofficial port of the Chromium
| sourcecode to run on the Maemo Linux
| platform that forms the core of Nokia's
| top-end N900 smartphone.


Nokia Launch: Symbian ^3, Or Just Maps?

,----[ Quote ]
| Nokiaâs recent N900 Linux device is
| currently generating more excitement than
| its Symbian smartphones.


The first MeeGo release

,----[ Quote ]
| Today is the culmination of a huge effort
| by the worldwide Nokia and Intel teams to
| share the MeeGo operating system code with
| the open source community. This is the
| latest step in the full merger of Maemo and
| Moblin, and we are happy to open the
| repositories and move the ongoing
| development work into the open - as we set
| out to do from the beginning.


MeeGo code released for netbooks, the N900, and Aava phone

,----[ Quote ]
| The MeeGo community has "opened the
| repositories" on early code for the open
| source mobile Linux operating system, which
| combines the Intel-backed Moblin and
| Nokia's Maemo platforms. Images are now
| publicly available for the MeeGo
| distribution infrastructure and OS base
| "from the Linux kernel to the OS
| infrastructure up to the middleware layer,"
| says the community.


MeeGo gets going: source code and developer builds available

,----[ Quote ]
| In a statement today at the official MeeGo
| community Web site, Intel Open Source
| Technology Center director Imad Sousou
| announced that the MeeGo source code and
| first installable images are available for
| download. The platform itself is still
| incomplete and under heavy active
| development. The purpose of this release is
| to make it possible for third-party
| developers to begin participating in the
| project.


MeeGo steering group easing platform concerns?

,----[ Quote ]
| Valtteri Halla, the Nokia member of the MeeGo
| Technical Steering Group recently attempted
| to allay the concerns of the open source
| community by underscoring the importance of
| openness in the development of the MeeGo
| operating system.
