Intel rumored to Stop developing MeeGo OS
 
 

MeeGo OS dead before first devices hit the market? Digitimes carries a rumor report today that says that Intel is planning to temporarily discontinue development of MeeGo OS. This comes at a weird timing as Nokia N9 MeeGo phone hits select markets this month and we all wait for the $199 Asus Eee PC X101 netbook running MeeGo OS.

According to the report Intel is focusing on using Android and Windows Phone OS for its platforms. Intel responded to the report saying it stays committed to MeeGo. So for now we really do not know what will really happen. The future for MeeGo looks not that bright. The release of MeeGo hardware is ramping up really very slow. Additionally Nokia is now focusing on Microsoft Windows OS. Nokia is not even giving their first MeeGo phone a global launch. MeeGo would be an alternative for Android for those device makers that do not like the Google Motorola relationship.

About the Geek Mind

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.
