Netbook Apps Reinvent the Wheel

,----[ Quote ]
| Meanwhile, Googleâs Chrome OS netbooks 
| will dispense with the operating system 
| completely when they become available in 
| late fall in favor of apps from the Chrome 
| Web App store.
| Of course, Linux and Windows netbooks like 
| the ones Intel is targeting with the AppUp 
| Store can run whatever software you want 
| them to run â just like laptops and 
| desktops. Their rebranding as things that 
| run apps is, if anything, a step 
| backwards.


Prototype Smartphone Uses Intel Chip and OS

,----[ Quote ]
| Steve Paine, who edits the Carrypad and UMPC 
| portal got his hands on a prototype 
| smartphone running Intelâs chips and MeeGo, a 
| Linux-based operating system developed by 
| Intel and Nokia.


A niche player

,----[ Quote ]
| For one thing, it runs on the Linux-based 
| Maemo 5 operating system. This is one very 
| niche device aimed speÂcifically at those 
| passionate guys that reside within the wider 
| Debian and Ubuntu communities - the ones who 
| love to tinker with things.



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)
