Nokia & Intel Join Forces to create MeeGO, a Linux based OS for Multiple Device Segments

February 15, 2010, By Atul Roach

The experts thoroughly realize that Linux based operating systems cater to a niche market and that leaves us in a dilemma as to why Nokia and Intel had to join forces and collectively develop MeeGo in the future. In layman terms, Nokia Maemo and Intel’s Moblin have been combined to create a software platform dubbed the MeeGo and it will support numerous hardware architectures stretching across the broadest range of gadgetry.

This broad ranging involves anything from a mobile computing device to a tablet or a media phone and even a car infotainment system.

Both Intel and Nokia will quickly work on the development of MeeGo and gadgets featuring the software platform will hit the market by the end of this year. What is still a mystery though is the kind of doodads which will first grace the platform.

As per Nokia CEO, Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, the merger will create an ecosystem that is second to none. I think the two behemoths should place their best bets on the in-car infotainment to adore this platform the most! [via: Infosyncworld]
