Two months after the announcement of the Meego operating system, the merger of the Moblin and Maemo platforms, version 1.0 of the Linux based OS was presented at the Intel Developer Forum, that took place in Beijing, China this week.
In the first video you see a quick demonstration of MeeGo 1.0 running on a Pine Trail CPU powered Acer Aspire One netbook, which should look familiar to those who know widget based Moblin user interface.
But MeeGo is not only for at netbooks, it's also targeted at handheld computers, in-vehicle infotainment devices, connected TVs, and media phones, which we see in the second video, where MeeGo is demoed on a Lenovo netbook, an Internet TV, a Smartphone and a digital coupon machine with RFID.
On nice feature demonstrated here is the synchronisation of content between the netbook, the TV, and the smartphone. While I can well do without coupon machines, it's an example of MeeGo's flexibility and variety of use cases.
What do you think, will we see the MeeGo OS, backed by the two tech giants Intel and Nokia, running on netbooks, smartphones and other devices in the near future?
