Nokia and Intel merge Mobilin with Maemo to produce MeeGo

Nokia and Intel have jumped on the mobile operating system bandwagon by jointly announcing MeeGo, an open platform for mobile computing devices, tablets, netbooks, smartphones, internet-connected TVs and in-vehicle infotainment systems. MeeGo takes the best of Intel’s Mobilin platform and merges it Maemo, the linux-based operating system that powers the Nokia N900. MeeGo will target a wide range of devices, including both ARM and Intel-based platforms, and will offer users a continuity across devices that is not yet seen with other mobile OS platforms. MeeGo will support the cross-platform Qt application and UI framework which allows developers to code for both MeeGo and Symbian simultaneously. Developers can download the Qt framework now and get cracking on the first MeeGo applications while they wait for the first MeeGo devices to launch in the second half of 2010. Anyone excited for yet another mobile OS to poke, prod and ponder or have we reached the saturation point?
