About MeeGo
The MeeGo project combines Intel’s Moblin™ and Nokia’s Maemo
projects into one Linux-based, open source software platform for
the next generation of computing devices. The MeeGo software
platform is designed to give developers the broadest range of
device segments to target for their applications, including
netbooks and entry-level desktops, handheld computing and
communications devices, in-vehicle infotainment devices, connected
TVs, media phones and more – all using a uniform set of APIs
based on Qt. For consumers, MeeGo will offer innovative application
experiences that they can take from device to device. The MeeGo
project is hosted by the Linux Foundation. For more information on
