Nokia & Intel Launch New operating System MeeGo
Nokia and Intel announced to create a new Linux-based operating system MeeGo. MeeGo integration of Nokia's Maemo, and Intel's Moblin two Linux computing environment, specifically for access to this and smart mobile phones and other portable equipment design, can be used for vehicles and TV Internet access and other non-desktop platform.
The two companies together eye-catching, not only because of MeeGo to integrate the two into a Linux platform, under the eaves, but also because the operating system, cross-platform support for Intel and ARM chips.
As the demand for low-power, ARM chips are widely used in Apple's iPhone and other smart phones in the.
MeeGo the operating system is intended to allow application developers to write programs once and then can be used from smart phones to the Internet and all other applications of this hardware platforms; in an increasingly competitive smartphone space, the competitive strategies are increasingly popular. Adobe has recently adopted the same strategy, application developers only need to write a program, you can Flash applications for the desktop and laptops, as well as mobile phones and many other operating systems.
Intel and Nokia announced that, after Moblin for Maemo or the application of computing environments will be the same for the new operating system MeeGo.
