Intel and Nokia merge Moblin and Maemo to create MeeGo.
MeeGo is a Linux-based software platform that will support multiple hardware architectures across the broadest range of device segments, including pocketable mobile computers, netbooks, tablets, mediaphones, connected TVs and in-vehicle infotainment systems.

Finally some consolidation on the Linux mobile OS area. The LiMo Foundation is still going alone against Android.

MeeGo blends the best of Maemo with the best of Moblin to create an open platform for multiple processor architectures. MeeGo builds on the capabilities of the Moblin core OS and its support for a wide range of device types and reference user experiences, combined with the momentum of Maemo in the mobile industry and the broadly adopted Qt application and UI framework for software developers.

The first release of MeeGo is expected in the second quarter of 2010 with devices launching later in the year.
