Goodbye Maemo, goodbye Moblin, hello MeeGo

MeeGoIntel and Nokia, which announced a partnership last summer, have decided to merge two of their software platforms. Intel's Moblin platform will join with Nokia's Maemo to create a new Linux-based software platform called MeeGo. It's designed to support a wide range of devices, from handheld computers to in-car entertainment and from netbooks to TVs.

The first release of MeeGo is expected in the second quarter of 2010 with devices launching later in the year. MeeGo apps will be offered via the Ovi Store and the Intel AppUp Center.

Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini said "Our vision for seamlessly communicating between computing devices from the home, auto, office or your pocket is taking a big step forward today with the introduction of MeeGo. This is a foundational step in our evolving relationship with Nokia. The merging of these two important assets into an open source platform is critical toward providing a terrific experience across a variety of devices and gaining cross- industry support."
