09/09/2011, Earlier this month, we found out that Intel has decided to lay the smack down on the MeeGo platform by stopping all development for this operating system “temporarily”. Of course, Intel did not mention just how “temporary” this hiatus would be, or will it be a permanent one eventually, but they wanted to sugar-coat the situation? Intel’s Systems Software Division manager Doug Fisher did mention that the company remains “committed” […]
09/02/2011, Digitimes of Taiwan has stepped forward to claim that Intel intends to “temporarily discontinue development of its MeeGo OS”, and when it comes to the word “temporarily”, we sure hope Intel means it and not change the meaning to a permanent absence. Still, this piece of news does not bode well for MeeGo, especially after Nokia withdrew from the MeeGo OS initiative in February earlier this year, leaving Intel all […]
04/29/2011, When it comes to MeeGo-powered devices, this is a relatively new market to delve into – and both Huawei and Panasonic did announce their plans to roll out MeeGo handsets. This is a Linux-based operating system which Nokia opted to distance itself from, and MeeGo “strikes back” in a way by hosting a conference in San Francisco at the end of May, with LG on board to host a session […]
10/28/2010, The latest version of MeeGo comes under the guise of 1.1 – where this update will target Nokia N900 owners. This is the second update made to the MeeGo operating system since it rolled out in May this year, where engineering plans do point towards support for U-Boot for dual booting between MeeGo and Maemo. Nice to see the folks over at Nokia living up to users’ expectations without sidelining […]
09/14/2010, MeeGo is yet another player when it comes to the portable operating system market, and the MeeGo-powered 7-inch GemTek Moorestown tablet was spotted at IDF 2010 in San Francisco. Running on a customized MeeGo interface, you get a slew of widgets in the home scren itself, complete with Intel’s AppUp store that enables you to pluck (or rather, purchase) apps straight from the tablet itself, with Firefox’s Fennec mobile browser […]
09/03/2010, The Neofonie WeTab that has some birth pangs features hardware specifications which would put the Apple iPad to shame – after all, who can argue with a 11.6-inch display at 1,366 x 768 resolution, HDMI output support, two (yes, not just one) USB ports, a 1.3-megapixel camera and Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity? With an Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz processor running within, it is power packed to say […]
04/13/2010, The Linux Foundation recently unveiled additional supporters for the MeeGO operating system, where it is actually a merger of the Moblin and Maemo. A couple of more noticeable supporters would be Taiwan heavyweights Acer and Asus, making us wonder which will be the first among the two to roll out a MeeGo-powered netbook.
03/31/2010, Mobile computing seems to be the marketing mantra for many a hardware company these days, and competition is stiff. Well, MeeGo, which is basically a fusion of Maemo and Moblin, is a new operating system that is available for both netbooks as well as other handheld computing devices. There are three builds available, supporting Intel Atom netbooks, ARM-powered Nokia N900s and Intel Atom handhelds that run on the Moorestown architecture. […]
