MeeGo 1.1 handset build gets new video demo

The MeeGo team has already promised that there won't be any new devices running the open-source OS launched at the MeeGo Conference this week, but that hasn't stopped them showing off the latest build of the OS.

Nokia: N900 MeeGo dual-boot isn’t for consumers

News earlier that the Nokia N900 would be getting a dual-boot MeeGo option cheered up a lot of people, who had begun to suspect that the Finns intended to leave them and their open-source smartphone in the cold.  Now, however, the official word from Nokia has come through to The Nokia Blog that consumers still won't be offered a dual-boot option: it's only intended for developers to use.
