Nokia and Intel unveil MeeGo platform

MeeGo is an open, Linux-based platform targetting smartphones, netbooks and other computing and communications devices.

Nokia and Intel today announced MeeGo, an open sourced, Linux-based platform that will target smartphones, netbooks and other computing and communications devices, but refused to confirm any hardware or carrier partners.

On the first day of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Nokia and Intel announced that MeeGo will merge with the Linux-based Maemo platform seen on Nokia's N900 smartphone. MeeGo is set to launch in Q2 2010, though an Australian release time is unconfirmed.

Nokia also revealed that the MeeGo platform will not replace Symbian, the OS currently used on most Nokia smartphones and refused to comment or reveal any hardware or carrier partners for the new platform.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
