When I first started The Mobile Spoon, my main purpose was to have a site where mobile technologies are being explained for everyone, and not just for techie people (after all, this site's is all about Mobile Technologies for the Common People…)
Today I would like to talk about Nokia's MeeGo.
For years, most of Nokia's handsets were running (and still are) the Symbian OS. An operating system originally created by Psion, and sold to Nokia around 2008.
Symbian was a popular operating system running on Samsung, Ericsson, Nokia and more. Today it is considered to be old, heavy, and mostly running on Nokia devices only.
In February 2010, Nokia and Intel announced the merger of Maemo and Moblin to create MeeGo, a Linux-based software platform designed to work across a range of hardware architectures and devices including mobile computers, netbooks, tablets, mediaphones, connected TVs and in-vehicle infotainment systems.
We are expected to see first MeeGo devices towards the end of 2010.
Excited? Can't wait? Follow me on Twitter!
MeeGo is an open software platform which will be hosted by the Linux Foundation and use the best practices of open source development. Nokia and Intel expect that MeeGo will be adopted by a range of device manufacturers, network operators, semiconductor companies, software vendors and developers.
