More information and images have been released on MeeGo, the new operating system developed by Nokia and Intel based upon the Nokia Maemo and the Intel Moblin OSs. A wide range of companies, from a broad array of technology sectors, have publically given their support to the project for the first time including: Acer, Asus, BMW Group, EA Mobile, Red Flag, PixArt, ST-Ericsson Gameloft, Novell, TurboLinux and Xandros.
At the same time, Intel has released a list of features that MeeGo handhelds will routinely feature. They include: 3G for both voice and data transfer, Wi-Fi for the wireless connection to the Internet, VoIP, Instant Messaging, a Fennec browser with Flash, social networking support, various types of syncing, location-based services, a camera, audio and video players and more.
Observers believe that MeeGo hardware – including netbooks - should appear on the market sometime during the second half of this year.
