Meltemi IS Linux based replacement for S40

Remember Project Meltemi – a new Linux based OS for Nokia, as indicated by the name (which follows the Maemo way of wind names).

We had a tip that we didn’t get to post about as I wasn’t sure where it was going, but GSM Arena later covered saying it’s NOT Linux, with speculation that it was Windows Phone related.

Tiv tipped us the other day but I missed it, so thanks Markus for the heads up again. The Register wants to clarify that indeed, Meltemi is linux based.

What do they have to go on? Well apparently that’s what ‘their sources’ are telling them.

Ha, now GSM Arena has also posted a rebuttal of their rebuttal.

Notes to think about again.

  • ‘MeeGo Lite.’
  • Swipe experience
  • Qt and Qt UI.
  • 1GHz +
