MeeGo 1.0 is seen for the first time on video
Nokia and Intel have high hopes for the operating system MeeGo. Announced in the last Mobile World Congress, it is based on Linux and was born from the projects Maemo, by the Finnish company, and Moblin, from the hand of Intel.
In recent days we have heard that Meego was available in its public repositories with images ready to download, but in them the presentation layer or graphical interface of the operating system had not been included, until today we can finally see it working:
What we can see in the video is Meego 1.0, have decided to use an Acer netbook with an Intel Atom processor to carry out the demonstration, and at first glance it seems to have been left with More ideas from Moblin than from Maemo.
The interface is based on tabs, which divide the main functionalities of the system, such as web browsing, applications, integration with social networks, or games, and attention because we have 3D graphic acceleration, as we can see in the video.
One operating system for multiple devices
The idea of developing a system for different architectures and types of devices is risky, since we are talking about the fact that its developers want to cover it, from mobile phones to cars, tablets or televisions.
In the following video we will see a demonstration of the aforementioned integration in different devices. In it we will also see how he resorts to the intel app store to download a video player to the test netbook.
We can see how the video played by the netbook is synchronized from the television, which has a Meego interface adapted for the occasion. The same goes for the mobile phone based in moorestown carried by the show host.
Finally, they show us a discount dispensing machine with RFID technology, which, when connecting to our Meego account, sends discounts directly to the phone. It is not something that in the West is something very normal, but in countries like China they are having a great boom.
Leaving the demonstrations, we could classify MeeGo's main competitor as: Android, which is also appearing on more and more devices, in addition to expanding support to other architectures.
Having seen what it looks like on a netbook, very similar to Moblin, I am curious to see how they integrate MeeGo in small devices, not more than 5 inches, either with Moorestown or Texas Instruments OMAP architectures, such as the Nokia N900.
