Intel and Nokia will be launching a MeeGo-based smartphone before the end of 2010. New Atom smartphone chips are also in the offing. One of them, the Z600, is expected to drive the new MeeGo device. Pocket-Lint reports that Pankaj Kedia, director of mobile Internet devices at Intel, promised a MeeGo device out before Christmas.
Sadly, that's all we know of this exciting new gadget. MeeGo (a collaborative effort between Intel and Nokia) is honestly less exciting than the prospect of that Z600 processor. The Moorestown, as it is also known, is even more power-efficient than a normal Atom chip. In a smartphone, the chip can clock up to 1.5 GHz. It also uses Hyperthreading, which allows it to behave like a two core device in some cases.
