Nokia S Series â The MeeGo Smartphones We Want To See 

,----[ Quote ]
| Itâs always been expected that the Maemo 
| based Nokia N900 will eventually run MeeGo, 
| but it would be nice to see a whole range of 
| smartphones running this smarter than smart 
| Open Source OS.


A Review Of MeeGo v1.0: Is It Good Enough For Your Netbook?

,----[ Quote ]
| When I first set out to try MeeGo, I had 
| hoped to boot up the live USB image on my 
| netbook. What I soon discovered, however, is 
| that it would not work. My netbook (an EeePC 
| 1201n) has an Nvidia Ion graphics chipset, 
| which is not supported by MeeGo (along with 
| ATI and Intel GMA 500 chipsets). I further 
| found that my other netbook (EeePC 900) was 
| also not supported because it was a pre-Atom 
| model, and MeeGo only supports Intel Atom 
| processors.

| MeeGo seems like a pretty decent operating 
| system. On the surface, however, it does not 
| seem very different from Moblin, which would 
| make it appear to be a one-sided Intel 
| affair. Underneath, however, Nokia has 
| integrated it with the QT widget set and 
| underlying Linux kernel development merged 
| from Maemo. All of this makes MeeGo very 
| fast, which I was not able to accurately 
| test in Qemu.
| Overall, it seems good, but it will need 
| some screen size improvement to work well on 
| netbooks. For tablets, the large tabs at the 
| top will work nicely. Assuming Intel and 
| Nokia plan to support a larger number of 
| devices than they currently do, MeeGo will 
| be a nice addition.



Make mine a Maemo

| NOKIA has taken a big step forward with the
| N900 slider smartphone which ditches the
| stolid Symbian operating system (OS) for the
| more pleasing looks of Maemo 5, a Linux-based
| OS. Having tested the N900 for two weeks, I
| can cheerfully report that it is definitely a
| step in the right direction.
