These developers/hackers never cease to amaze us. Do they? Steven Troughton-Smith a developer who needs no introduction in the mobile world of hacking and porting, has managed to port Meego to a smartphone from foreign land, Nexus S.
Meego v1.1 has gone live and if you own a Nokia N900, then you are in for a treat as the v1.1 of Meego bring dual booting capabilities for your Maemo enabled handset thanks to a feature named U-boot.
Uptil now, I have read and shared with you folks the news of Android landing on non-Android devices such as iPhone, Nokia N900 and others. But this is new and unique as Android is playing host to a non-Android mobile OS. Here it is – Meego a jointly developed mobile OS from Intel and Nokia has landed on not one, not two but three Android devices namely Nexus One, Dell Streak and last but not the least HTC Desire.
I think it would be safe to say that Nokia has a major leakage problem provided they see it as a problem. First the C7 images leaked out and now the specs of the QWERTY shaped Nokia N9 have leaked out. A NokNok reader who goes by the name Lee has to be thanked for sharing the link and performing a great deed for the Nokia community. Specs follow after the jump.
What comes after Nokia N8? Nokia N9 is the answer I am looking for. Infact, N9 is the smartphone that the Nokia folks themselves are working on as well. Folks at Negrielectronics have shared the first ever video of the upcoming smartphone which you can see after the jump.
Attention Meego fans, v1.0 of Meego has been unleashed and is currently available as a free download for Intel based netbooks and Nokia N900. If you recall, Meego is a open source project and in essence is a combination of Intel’s Moblin and Nokia’s Maemo project.
Very recently Meego was unleashed and also brought with it a native image for Nokia N900. Meego is an OS designed in collaboration by Intel and Nokia for mobile phones and tablets. Naturally you would want to get the OS up and running to see what it has to offer. The first step of course for that is to flash or install the Meego image on N900. Steps listed after the jump.
