We just spotted a video demo of what looks like MeeGo OS running inside a Nokia Phone Emulator. The screens don’t look like the UI where MeeGo screenshots pointed us about a month ago. But we heard that Nokia is going to have it’s own UI on top of the native MeeGo UI and this might be atleast a portion of that. But the UI looks pretty impressive !

Here is the unboxing of the Nokia N900 Maemo Masters edition we received from Nokia India.
The Nokia N9 which is rumored to be the first MeeGo phone from Nokia was shown off in a video which seems to have been pulled out of Youtube last month. The MeeGo project today released some screenshots of MeeGo for handsets and the UI looks a bit different than Maemo and much more different than Symbian. The UI draws inspiration from Android and WebOS. Now Eldar of Mobile-Review tweeted that the Nokia N9 will have a different UI and not the default MeeGo UI. Continue reading “Nokia N9 MeeGo UI might look different”
The folks at MeeGo have just announced the Day 1 of the Handset Experience project for Meego
The guys from NegriElectronics have kept their promise to show a video of the leaked Nokia device . They are still strongly calling it the N9. Till know we were pretty sure that the N9 might be a MeeGo phone. But this thing is running on Symbian 3. We are hearing from sources that the Nokia N8 has some siblings one of which might have a QWERTY keyboard. Having looked at the Keypad it reminds of the N97 mini but this one has 4 rows unlike the min with 3 rows. We are not convinced that this is the N9. This might be a N8-01 or N8-02 or simply N8 QWERTY. It can also be the E7 or in a rare case the C7 !
Watch the video after the break ! Continue reading “Is Nokia N9 a N8 with a QWERTY keyboard ?”

Finally Meego has released the version 1.0 of the software platform for Netbooks . And they have hinted at June release for Handhelds. MeeGo 1.1 handset UI development will start in June . The MeeGo Netbook User experience release will be followed by a early developer release for handhelds and tablets. The MeeGo image is available for download from the MeeGo site and it would run on Intel Atom based Netbooks.MeeGo v1.1 will be released in October and it will include support for touch-based devices such as Handsets, Tablets, and In-Vehicle Infotainment systems. So it should be end of the year by the time we see MeeGo powered phones
And this is a developer release , so if you are faint hearted , do stay away !
