Video: MeeGo – QT based UI running on AAVA's Moblin 2.1 Smartphone – What is MeeGo and Moblin?

| February 24, 2010 | Reply

Some MeeGo and Moblin videos for you. About MeeGo

  • MeeGo is the merger of “the best of Maemo” with “the best of Moblin”
  • MeeGo – Qt App development means cross platform (and cross device) compatibility with Symbian (and other OS?). Move from one device to another and still use the same app.
  • MeeGo was built for powerful next gen devices from the ground up (instead of Phone to Desktop or desktop to phone)
  • Maemo 6 Harmattan phone will still be Maemo 6 harmattan phone just called MeeGo
  • Maemo 7 will be the first real MeeGo OS from the ground up with content from Moblin.
  • Maemo 6 is compatible with MeeGo so whatever device has Maemo 6 can get supported MeeGo
  • Apps developed on Maemo 6 will be MeeGo compliant
  • N900 is compatible with Maemo 6/MeeGo but unsure whether it will be officially supported on Nokia’s end?
  • N900 has Qt package and you can build on top of Qt – bringing Qt/MeeGo apps to N900
  • Intel partnership opens up MeeGo OS to more industry players and developers and deepens the pocket for next gen Mobile OS development.
  • Maemo brings full fledged mobile OS to MeeGo, Moblin brings x86 support, build infrastructure, developer tools, partners with various software vendors
  • MeeGo hopefully brings both OS to mainstream users, Joe and Jane Average.
  • MeeGo is about continuous connectivity and internet anywhere. To succeed, MeeGo and Linux believes this requires a single OS when transitioning from a variety of devices; be it smartphone, tablet, netbook, navigation device

– From what I gather at least anyway. It’s all rather very confusing the more I delve into the technical side behind it so I’ll leave it there. But do check out the links below for more info.

Moblin and Maemo are two very similar Linux based platforms trying to push the whole “Mobile Computers in your Pocket” angle.

As a Nokia fan you’re probably already pretty aware of Maemo, how it works, how it looks, how it performs.

But what do we know of Moblin? (First incidence I heard of Moblin was when MeeGo was announced :S)

Moblin –

first saw the light of day on netbooks
