Nokia N900 Getting First MeeGo OS Code Next Week

March 25, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

After releasing the N900, Nokia stated that the device won’t be finished until it’s been updated with Maemo 6. Afterwards, one thing lead to another and Maemo OS merged with Moblin OS, forming the MeeGo OS. A few weeks ago, it was revealed by Nokia that the OS is coming up, and the first MeeGo code should be released by the end of this month. That’s coming to reality now, as they’ve announced that next week Nokia N900 users from around the world will get the first piece of MeeGo.

According to the company though, the OS is still in a rather primitive state, focusing on functionality and pushing stability and eye candy to the back for the time being. It’s expected to have quite a few bugs, but then again that’s the purpose of releasing it – getting a public beta test.

It should be noted that it’s not advisable to try it out unless you’re at least moderately experienced with flashing your phone, and have some experience with the Linux OS as well.

The code isn’t dual-bootable either, so don’t expect to be able to go back very easily if you don’t like it.
