Big big news everybody and – Nokia’s Maemo platform is merging with Intel’s Moblin platfrom to create a new, LInux-based platform called <b>Meego</b>! The companies plan on offering the OS on multiple types of devices, from tablets to phones to television boxes.
Meego will work with the Qt app development ecosystem – which will hopefully radically increase the number of apps available for Nokia’s Linux devices. The software will be hosted by the Linux foundation, and naturally it will be fully open source. It’ll come in the second quarter of 2010 and we’ll have devices by the end of the year!
We were live at the event, read on for updates from the press event and the full press release after the break.
