MeeGo Gets A Shot In The Arm, Amidst All The Turmoil [UPDATED]
It hasn’t been the best week for the operating system MeeGo, with Nokia making it clear where their efforts were going to be concentrated, subsequent to their strategic alliance with Microsoft. So good MeeGo news was not to be expected, but surprisingly, it has arrived rather quickly.
First off, the world got its first MeeGo powered notebook. Unfortunately, that’s the only thing to celebrate. The notebook is fairly ordinary in all other respects, though it is priced competitively. So without further ado, here is Fujitsu LifeBook MH330, the world’s first MeeGo notebook.
- 1.66GHz Intel Atom processor
- 1 GB memory
- 250GB hard drive
- 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 LED-backlit screen
- Retailing at $400
But that’s not all folks. Just prior to the kickoff of MWC 2011, Intel decided to show just how serious they are about MeeGo when they displayed the following poster in Barcelona, at the MWC venue.
As you can clearly make out, the two devices Intel is teasing us with are a smartphone and a tablet, currently the hottest things in the tech world. The pictures above will certainly have an effect on all, including Nokia who might wonder on their recent moves. Either way, I can simply can’t wait to see where this all goes!
