The Computex 2010 trade-show launched today and Intel already held their press event announcing future Atom CPUs and the new ultra-thin netbook platform Canoe.
In the Intel Computex 2010 image databank I found a couple shots of the Quanta Redvale tablet that runs MeeGo and is based on the next generation Atom CPU platform. Apparently Redvale replaces the Moorestown MID effort.
I just love the tech world. In 2010 MIDs are dead and Tablets are the new kings in town.
If MeeGo based devices even have a chance on the market is still a big question mark. MeeGo got created by Intel and Nokia earlier this year by merging Moblin and Maemo.
MeeGo is a Linux-based software platform and so will be GoogleChrome OS. And of course HP has now Palm's webOS, which at its heart is also Linux.
There are no further details at this point about the Quanta Redvale Tablet.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
