Video: MeeGo handset UI on a tablet – looks great!

Here’s a cool video, it’s MeeGo Handset UI on a tablet.

Although MeeGo handset is no where near ready (both Vanilla and Nokia’s secret version that’s supposedly going to be amazing and have a different UI “Pattern”) it translates great on a bigger touch screen, despite the comments that a Phone and Tablet should have separate UI.

I guess the Maemo now MeeGo experience has always been tablet focused first (being developed on the “internet tablets).

I’d love 10″ tablet with MeeGo handset UI vanilla or Nokia’s (well based on the leaked Nokia UI, though I have no idea if the supposed Amazing one will look anything like that). There’s no sign at the moment of any tablet sporting the pre-alpha tablet UI which impressed us all back in June this year.


Not noticed on N900 before but look at the “load ring” around icons when starting for X-term. Good distraction though something more obvious would be more helpful to take attention away from loading (hopefully final product will be faster as to not have lags)

The Browser looks great, as does the on-screen keyboard. Oh I miss you, Fennec. S60 Browser makes me want to poke nails into my eyes.

Old leaked MeeGo UI

I don’t remember the conversations precisely but the gist was that MeeGo handset UI dropped to have entirely new Qt UI (Or something like that). I could me confabulating this, been feeling all ill this weekend. :S
