Nokia N9 now packing 1.2GHz Intel Atom for MWC 2011 reveal?

Nokia's MeeGo-based N9 flagship smartphone has hit a few hurdles along the way; originally the company hoped to have a MeeGo device on the market by the end of 2010, a window that slipped to 2011. Initially, the N9 was expected to use a Texas Instruments OMAP processor, as with its existing handsets. However, according to Finnish magazine Prosessori, Nokia has junked the TI chip and opted instead to power the N9 with a 1.2GHz Intel Atom processor

Evolve III Maestro can’t choose between Windows 7, MeeGo & Android: picks all three [Video]

How many OSes are too many on a tablet? Evolve III reckons three should be sufficient: its Maestro slate usually spends its time in Windows 7, but can also boot into MeeGo or Android depending on the user's mood and inclination. Demonstrated in all its triple-boot splendor to Geek at CES 2011, the Evolve III Maestro runs Intel's Atom N475 processor paired with 2GB of RAM and a 32GB SSD.

Nexus S Booted to MeeGo OS

Our pal Steven Troughton-Smith, aka XDA Developers Forum member stroughtonsmith, has released word that MeeGo has successfully been booted from the Nexus S. He and those working with him have booted MeeGo on their Nexus S handsets from a rootfs image on their internal memory - that means no flashing is needed at all! This is big news because not only does MeeGo offer a whole different operating system on a powerful bit of device, but it might very well be the first operating system (aside from the native Android) to work on the Nexus S successfully. Super fun and awesome hackin away!

Amino Freedom Jump MeeGo STB promises to play nicely with operators

Streaming STBs like Logitech's Revue and the Boxee Box are hugely flexible, but as Google and other have discovered, content owners are turning out to be pretty cautious with who and what can access their multimedia. Amino reckon that's a gap in the market; its Freedom Jump uses the same Intel Atom CE4100 as the Revue and Boxee Box, topped with MeeGo, but is designed to work alongside existing operator pay-TV STBs rather than bypassing them.

HTC HD2 gets MeeGo 1.1 install

HTC's HD2 has become something of a favorite among smartphone modders; we've already seen the Windows Mobile 6.5 device swap its Microsoft OS for Android and Windows Phone 7, and now it's the turn of MeeGo 1.1. Steve Troughton-Smith spotted that, since the HD2 is relatively similar to the Nexus One in terms of core hardware, it should be possible to tweak the instructions for installing MeeGo on the Googlephone to suit the HTC.

Nokia Android Honeycomb tablet is latest odd OS rumor

Nokia continues to insist it has no plans to deviate from its two-prong Symbian/MeeGo platform strategy, but the rumors that they're looking to Android or Windows Phone 7 just keep on coming. Slipped quietly into a DigiTimes report on Android Honeycomb tablets is the suggestion that Nokia has been working with Google - and is among a cadre of smartphone manufacturers getting preferential treatment, no less - on an Android slate that could launch early in the first half of 2011.

MeeGo User Interface Shown Off on a Tablet [Video]

MeeGo is still a work in progress, but at least with these little tid-bits, we get to see how that work is coming along. Even if this video doesn't show everything we'd like to see, and it's probably missing a few extras from Nokia themselves, we do get to see some homescreen action, menus, and even Mozilla's mobile Fennec browser. The look and feel of MeeGo, as far as the "demo" goes on this tablet device, seems to be a bit of an upgrade over previous iterations.

Nokia focusing on UI dynamics for MeeGo; needs to “regain the imagination”

Nokia SVP of Design Marko Ahtisaari has admitted that the company still needs "to somehow regain the imagination," though as always that route won't involve Android. "We'll go where we can add value," Ahtisaari said at LeWeb 2010 this morning, "that's not the case at the moment with Android." Instead, Nokia's design team is focused on new homescreen paradigms ahead of MeeGo's launch in 2011, with Ahtisaari arguing that the UI dynamics of iOS, Symbian and Android aren't quite there yet.
