As we reported early, Intel is still in Confidence and committed to its most anticipated and well-waiting OS MeeGo, since Nokia announced ally with Microsoftm it was believed that Intel would give up the effort. Thanks to Intel, Now Intel has delivered some videos of tablet that is running on MeeGo OS.
Intel Software and Services Group general manager Renée James said in a prepared statement that “Our MeeGo tablet user experience shows the power and flexibility of MeeGo,” “and by adding new developer tools and programs we will accelerate our tablet strategy and MeeGo ecosystem momentum to enable faster time-to-market with innovative products for OEMs and service providers alike.”
The first thing you will notice on the MeeGo home-screen is the presence of multiple panels, which you can easily disable thus personalizing its looks. Nothing particularly flashy or mind blowing, and we could notice a slight lag even during the demonstrations, but hopefully Intel will manage to polish the OS in the near future.
As an illustration to the current state of MeeGo, user experience design manager Darren Wilson noted: “A lot of other operating systems have got a lot of legacy, and they don’t have the opportunity to push the boundries as we do.”
In a separate pure-promo video, MeeGo user experience design manager Darren Wilson takes a none-too-subtle poke at Apple’s iPad operating system, iOS, saying that his team isn’t merely “taking a handset UI and scaling it up to a tablet.”
“Intel supports all major operating system environments,” she said, “working closely with developers, service providers and manufacturers around the world to deliver premium, cross platform experiences.” Intel’s James added.
