Nokia N9 MeeGo Phone Hits FCC, To Launch In June?

Nokia N9 MeeGo Phone Hits FCC, To Launch In June?

Ever since Nokia jumped ship from Symbian to Microsoft, the fate of the company's slated MeeGo handsets became dire. MeeGo devs, however, still have hope for the platform and an announcement back in February by CTO Rich Green suggested that a MeeGo-powered Nokia N950 would launch later this year mainly as a development platform.

Nokia phone/tablet strategy leak alleges Windows 8 slates and Vanjoki “backup”

Details on Nokia's alleged phone and tablet strategy for 2012 and 2013 have emerged, suggesting that the company is indeed looking to Windows 8 for its slates and that Maemo 6 will be rolled out for one final hurrah before being effectively dropped. Arch insider Eldar Murtazin has spilt the beans, claiming that Nokia is looking to release 5-7 mid-to-high end Symbian^3 handsets in 2012, along with a single tablet.

LG MeeGo smartphone and tablet demo coming next month

LG MeeGo smartphone and tablet demo coming next month

I hardly think I am alone in thinking that when Nokia pretty much abandoned MeeGo to tie up with Windows Mobile that MeeGo was dead. As it turns out MeeGo is still alive and kicking and LG is apparently going to be showing off a tablet that runs the OS along with a smartphone really soon. Whether or not the devices will be cool enough to grab any attention remains to be seen. I have strong doubts in a world dominated by iOS and Android.

Intel CEO confirms Honeycomb-on-x86 port; Medfield phones in next 12 months

Intel has confirmed that it has received the Android 3.0 Honeycomb code from Google, and that it is "actively" working on porting the tablet-centric platform to run on x86 chips like its Atom processors. Revealed during Intel's glowing Q1 financial results call, president and CEO Paul Otellini said that the company was working with "first-tier notebook vendors" on Android tablets using Intel processors. Leaks back in March suggested Intel was readying as many as eight Android-on-x86 devices for demonstration at IDF Beijing this month.

Linux Foundation Unveils MeeGo Smart TV Work Group

Linux Foundation Unveils MeeGo Smart TV Work Group

With Nokia pulling back from the MeeGo on smartphones, I guess it makes sense that Intel and others working on MeeGo would be looking to get the OS into other venues since its future in the smartphone world is murky at best. The Linux Foundation has announced that it has set up a MeeGo Smart TV working group. The working group hopes to drive the evolution of MeeGo within the TV ecosystem and provide an open framework.

Nokia readying 4 Windows Phone 7 handsets, MeeGo tablet rumored

Nokia readying 4 Windows Phone 7 handsets, MeeGo tablet rumored

Nokia looks to be hitting the ground running with up to four Windows Phone 7 handsets already in the R&D pipeline. The Phones are rumored to be based on Nokia's "Chasis 1" with a 1Ghz processor and capacitive touch screens. The other two mid range phones will be worked into "Chasis 2" with a slower 800 Mhz processor and resistive screens. In addition, Nokia's rumored Windows tablet entry won't be out until 2012 and will feature a full version of Windows 8, rather than the lean and mean Phone mobile OS. But others think that MeeGo isn't dead and may find a home in the tablet interface.

Nokia “Harmattan” Maemo 6 device tipped for release

Nokia “Harmattan” Maemo 6 device tipped for release

Nokia's OS policy seemed, although somewhat controversial, pretty straightforward: S30/S40 on the phones, Windows Phone on the smartphones and MeeGo back in the lab working on what comes next. Now, though, it seems Nokia has another product running a different OS in the pipeline for 2011, a Maemo "Harmattan" 6 device "expected to raise the interest of the MeeGo community."

Nokia “tweener” tablet tipped in mobile gaming push [Video]

Nokia's tablet ambitions may see the company slotting a so-called "tweener" device in-between smartphone and the currently available slates, according to Nokia EVP Tero Ojanperä. Speaking at SXSW this week with Rovio CEO Peter Vesterbacka, the Nokia exec suggested that the existing crop of tablets wouldn't be the last word in innovation, and predicted something somewhat larger than a smartphone could find a niche.

MeeGo OS Concept For Tablets

MeeGo OS Concept For Tablets

With the Nokia and Microsoft partnership, the once promising MeeGo OS has been relegated to research and development status with very little chance of ever becoming a mainstream platform. However, that doesn't stop developers from continuing to think up new UI concepts for the OS such as the one shown below, designed by Jozef Kocúr.
