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.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
