GENIVI Alliance selects MeeGo as future in-vehicle infotainment platform

The GENIVI Alliance isn’t exactly a household name, but the group — whose mission is to drive “the broad adoption of an In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) reference platform” — is comprised of companies such as BMW, Delphi, GM, and Intel. Via a press release, GENIVI announced that they have “chosen MeeGo as the basis of its next reference release for In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI).” The press release went onto say, “Adoption by this major automotive alliance is a testament to the cross-device, cross-architecture advantages of the MeeGo platform.” GENIVI aims to provide an open, scalable platform for mobile information and entertainment, especially in vehicles. There was no time-line given on when a Meego enable IVI system might hit the marketplace. MeeGo in your car… what do you think?
