Carrypad just scored a Meego prototype phone made by Aava Mobile. They promise to give more details in the next 48 hours. We’re warned that the Meego software is alpha quality, but at least the wifi and browser are working. You don’t need reminding that Nokia plans to deliver their first Meego device this year.
Head of Nokia’s Mobile Solutions, Anssi Vanjoki, wrote on the official Nokia Conversations blog that he is committed with getting Nokia back to being number one in high-end devices. He hints at upcoming plans and even clears up a few rumors. I wish he changed the headline though. “The fightback starts now,” sounds like they’ve been sitting idle all this time.
Meego forum member, fatalsaint, created a guide to install the Meego Preview for the Nokia N900. You shouldn’t do this if the N900 is your daily device because it isn’t targeted for end-users yet. The guide writer even warned developers to stay away. Noone can stop the curious, so read on if you’re still interested.
A document titled, MeeGo Handset Interaction Guidelines, was found buried deep within the official Meego site a few days ago. Although there were no images, it described an overall interaction model for the OS expected on upcoming high-end Nokia devices. It has been deleted already, but no online documents are safe from Google Cache! I’ve highlighted some things that looked interesting.
Meego released version 1.0 for netbooks today. Support for touch-based devices such as handsets, tablets, and vehicle infotainment systems is expected in October. If you would like to see how it looks like now on a netbook, Brad from Liliputing has a nice video overview after the jump.
Intel and Nokia announced their creation of the Meego platform a couple of months ago and now there’s a video from Intel showing version 1.0 on several devices including a phone. It looks like a Nokia N97 without a slide-out keyboard and with 4 touch-sensitive buttons similar to Android.
News of the Meego OS now being available for the Nokia N900 are spreading, but end users should stay clear. As explained in the announcement, it is currently targeted for developers and the MeeGo User Experiences for the OS isn’t included yet. Unsuspecting and adventurous users who try installing it on their device will just see text on black and white screen.
Intel and Nokia announced on Monday that they are merging their popular Moblin and Maemo platforms to form Meego, a Linux based platform that will support a vast range of devices including netbooks, tablets, phones, and more. Devices from Nokia and other manufacturers are expected to be launched later this year.
