[News] Nokia/Intel's MeeGo Gains Momentum

Hash: SHA1

MeeGo Gains Industry Momentum

,----[ Quote ]
| Intel and Nokia have released version 1.0 
| of the MeeGo Core Software Platform and the 
| MeeGo Netbook User Experience. This release 
| provides developers with a stable core 
| foundation for application development and 
| a rich user experience for Netbooks.

| But, first, let me take you through the 
| hardware. The N900 is a bit thick, because 
| of its sliding keypad. There is no rocker 
| button on the keypad and no pointer to 
| control either. There are four arrow keys 
| for scrolling around the web page. It is 
| also a touch-screen handset, and a stylus 
| is tucked into the keypad just in case you 
| have oversized fingertips to press the 
| application shortcuts and widgets.
| This smartphone is driven by an ARM Cortex 
| A8. It has 1 GB memory just for 
| applications and a whopping 32 GB to store 
| up to 7,000 songs or 40 hours of DVD-
| quality video. If that is not enough, you 
| can still add another 16 GB with a microSD.

| For those not familiar with MeeGo you better
| study up on it because it has officially
| arrived. MeeGo is the joining of two open
| source Linux operating systems â Intelâs Moblin
| and Nokiaâs Maemo â which was announced at
| Mobile World Congress earlier this year. It
| offers online and computing capability focused
| around multitasking, multimedia playback and
| strong graphics processing for a range of
| devices â not just netbooks or mobile phones.
| Up until now we havenât heard that much MeeGo
| talk, mostly just rumored rumblings, but my
| have the MeeGo gates opened.

| netbooks.


Intel seeks consumers for MeeGo

,----[ Quote ]
| Intel has released more details and the
| deployment roadmap for the company's MeeGo
| operating system (OS), highlighting its
| desire for consumers to start utilizing the
| open source platform.
| During his keynote here Wednesday at Computex
| 2010, Peter Biddle, director of Intel's AppUp
| products and services, noted that while he is
| "no longer worried" about attracting
| developers to create content for the MeeGo
| platform, it is consumer adoption that now
| preoccupies his thoughts. "We need more
| consumers!" he declared.


MeeGo user interface coming to Acer, Asus, other Linux devices

,----[ Quote ]
| Just a few months after the MeeGo Linux
| project was formed by the merger of the Maemo
| and Moblin projects, it looks like MeeGo is
| making some pretty serious progress in the
| marketplace.
| The other day we reported that it looked like
| Asus was going to launch devices running
| MeeGo in 2011, and a press release issued
| today pretty much confirms it. Acer officials
| say the company palns to beat Asus to market
| with a MeeGo-based netbook before the end of
| this year.


Is it time to MeeGo?

,----[ Quote ]
| What is MeeGo in the first place? As defined
| on its website, âMeeGo is an open source,
| Linux project which brings together the
| Moblin project, headed by Intel, and Maemo,
| by Nokia, into a single open source
| activity.â The aim is to provide a Linux-
| based OS for netbooks, handheld devices,
| televisions and set-top boxes, as well as in-
| vehicle computers.
| I downloaded the OS image from the site and
| immediately ran it on VMWare Fusion 3.1 on my
| Macbook Pro. Giving it 1GB of RAM and a
| single core to work with, the image booted up
| but that was it -- did not display anything
| on the screen. I tried this three times with
| different configurations and nothing.


MeeGo Brings The Magic

,----[ Quote ]
| I did install it without any problems on an
| Asus EeePC 1000HE, however there are a great
| number of existing netbooks out there and it
| might not work as seamlessly on other makes
| and models.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
