MeeGo v1.0 for netbooks and the Nokia N900 has now been released, complete with Qt 4.6 support, the MeeGo SDK with an integrated application development environment, and various other OS tools.  The MeeGo experience is centered around the Myzone, with various social networking, email, calendar and contacts widgets; these aggregate content from multiple networks, together with synchronized calendar, tasks, appointments and recently used files.

There's also the Google Chrome browser (or support for Google Chromium) and, when the MeeGo Handset version is released in June, the Fennec Mobile Browser will be implemented.  An early developer release of the MeeGo SDK - also in June - will support touch-based devices.

As for what's further around the corner, the MeeGo team plan to release v1.1 in October 2010, complete with support for touch-based devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and "In-Vehicle Infotainment systems".  You can download MeeGo v1.0 for netbooks here and v1.0 for the N900 here.  Demo video below by Brad Linder.
