Intel and Nokia Fuse Moblin and Maemo to Make the MeeGo OS

Labels: , , , ,

Not what we were expecting but at Nokia's conference they announced (with Intel) that they'll be launching a new OS that fuses Maemo and Moblin into one. It will be called MeeGo. Don't worry, it won't be replacing Symbian but it will be replacing the Maemo OS (which was already good to begin with). "MeeGo isn't just for mobile phones either, it's for televisions, cars, netbooks, literally anything with a processor inside." At this point I don't really understand if this means we won't see a Maemo 6, but let's see how this works out. Check out the MeeGo site here. The first device launching with MeeGo should be in the second half of this year.

  • Performance optimizations and features which enable rich computational and graphically oriented applications and connected services development
  • No-compromise internet standards support delivering the best web experiences
  • Easy to use, flexible and powerful UI/app development environment based on Qt
  • Open source project organization managed by the Linux Foundation
  • State of the Art Linux stack optimized for the size and capabilities of small footprint platforms and mobile devices, but delivering broad linux software application compatibility
  • MeeGo currently targets platforms such as netbooks/entry-level desktops, handheld computing and communications devices, in-vehicle infotainment devices, connected TVs, and media phones. All of these platforms have common user requirements in communications, application, and internet services in a portable or small form factor. The MeeGo project will continue to expand platform support as new features are incorporated and new form factors emerge in the market.
