Intel will continue to work on MeeGo, even after Nokia exit
MeeGo is an operating system based on Linux which is being jointly developed by Intel and Nokia – atleast till now. Nokia CEO Stephen Elop recently stated that the company would not be assoiciated with the MeeGo development process anymore owing to some pessimistic outlook of the maket about the future of the OS. Intel, on the other hand, is all fine with it. It reportedly already has a set roadmap for the year 2012.
Intel is ready to launch MeeGo 1.3 shortly that is expected to support Smart TVs and car multimedia players along with the existing support for tablets and smartphones. The 1.4 might also come out in Q2 of next year.
On related notes, Intel is not only restricted to promoting MeeGo. The American chip giant is all set to combine its netbook-specific Atom processors with Android Icecream Sandwich and Windows 8 when they come out.
