Meego marches forward on handsets and tablets

,----[ Quote ]
| Nokia has confirmed that it now plans to 
| release a preliminary version of its MeeGo 
| platform for handsets on the 30th of June. 
| The Linux-based distribution for mobile 
| devices is the result of the February 
| decision to merge Intel's Moblin platform 
| and Nokia's Maemo platform under the aegis 
| of the Linux Foundation.


Playing with MeeGo 1.0

| Perhaps that is the future of Linux on the 
| desktop - at least, Linux on the relatively 
| small desktop. Like Android, it's not the 
| sort of Linux experience that we are used 
| to, though MeeGo is far closer to 
| "traditional" Linux than Android is. But 
| perhaps it's an experience that will bring 
| in a new set of users; once they get used to 
| this environment, the full Linux experience 
| will be there for them to discover. That 
| should be a good thing.

Nokia seen making 9-inch tablet with ARM, MeeGo

,----[ Quote ]
| Nokia's rumored tablet had some of its
| details firmed up today in one analyst note.
| The device would use MeeGo, the mobile OS
| designed with Intel, but would use an ARM
| processor and not the Atom Z600 Intel would
| prefer. Digitimes Research claimed in the
| note that it would have either a seven- or
| nine-inch screen and would be assembled by
| Foxconn for the fall.


Nokia to launch a tablet later this year?

,----[ Quote ]
| Itâs likely that the new tablet will run
| MeeGo, a new Linux-based operating system
| that was formed by the merger of the Maemo
| and Moblin projects. Maemo was largely a
| Nokia-backed project, and the company has
| already released several smartphones and
| small internet devices running the Linux-
| based operating system.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
