Check it out - N900, as well as netbook, tvs, PMPs tablets etc. The world's largest mobile phone manufacturer, Nokia and the world's biggest computer chip maker, Intel started off with the Booklet 3G. Now moving into software collaboration too.

The Intel/Nokia partnership strengthens even further with the announcement that they are combining the best of Nokia’s experimental Maemo OS with Intel’s Moblin OS to create a super mobile OS. Qt of course means writing one application that can cross other platforms.

MeeGo. Cue LOLCAT/Bad Engrish jokes. I like it. Scratc that. I love it. I hope this is the branding for it. Simple. Odd, like Wii but catchy.

Me Go School now.

Before I dash off, here’s an excerpt from the press release.

Our vision for seamlessly communicating between computing devices from the home, auto, office or your pocket is taking a big step forward today with the introduction of MeeGo,” said Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini. “This is a foundational step in our evolving relationship with Nokia. The merging of these two important assets into an open source platform is critical toward providing a terrific experience across a variety of devices and gaining cross- industry support.”

“MeeGo will drive an even wider range of Internet computing and communication experiences for consumers, on new types of mobile devices,” said Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, CEO, Nokia. “Through open innovation, MeeGo will create an ecosystem that is second to none, drawing in players from different industries. It will support a range of business models across the value chain, building on the experience and expertise of Nokia, Intel and all those who will join us. Simply put, MeeGo heralds a new era of mobile computing.”
