Nokia And Intel Release MeeGo 1.1 To Developers

Nokia and Intel have released the first MeeGo mobile phone operating system build to developers.

The new MeeGo OS supports Intel Atom-powered netbooks and in-vehicle infotainment units, as well as ARM-based Nokia N900 smartphone.

According a blog post, the MeeGo 1.1 release comes with the MeeGo Handset UX framework, MeeGo Handset Dialer, MeeGo Handset SMS and MeeGo Handset Browser, among other core features. The release also includes the MeeGo 1.1 Core OS.

The OS release comes with some known bugs and issues, but workarounds are available on the blog here.

The companies said that the release is only meant for developers and not for commercial use. People who install the OS on their N900 will loose any warranty claims, they added.

“Any installation is solely at your own risk and may cause some of the safety and security mechanisms of the device not to function at all, or to operate unexpectedly,” the companies warned.
