MeeGo Coming To N900 Says Nokia

Nokia is to bring it's Linux based MeeGo operating system to the N900 in an effort to allow for it to be "... really usable as your daily development device" according to Jukka Eklund, developer edition product manager.

He went on to say that "Basic handset UX should work, phone calls, SMS, web browsing. So we are concentrating on a few selected features and polish those to be 'perfect'. It might mean that we leave out some things in MeeGo 1.2 trunk for this edition, but that is not the default intention. We are doing this fully in the open, and I hope this is an interesting project where we all in the community work towards the same goal: have a great MeeGo edition in the N900".

MeeGo has pretty much been relegated to the sidelines ever since the announcement that Nokia would be partnering with Microsoft to use Windows Phone 7 so I guess it is nice to see that there is still some life left in it.
