While we are disappointed with Nokia’s decision, Intel is not blinking on MeeGo. We remain committed and welcome Nokia’s continued contribution to MeeGo open source.
Our strategy has always been to provide choice when it comes to operating systems, a strategy that includes Windows, Android, and MeeGo. This is not changing.
MeeGo is not just a phone OS, it supports multiple devices. And we’re seeing momentum across multiple segments – automotive systems, netbooks, tablets, set-top boxes and our Intel silicon will be in a phone that ships this year.
While Nokia , slightly not-abandoning MeeGo project, and with very little support for interested developers now for smartphone apps, Intel is still decided to go on with the project. Since MeeGo is not just a phone OS, even without nokia, the development will still continue as it (MeeGo) penetrates automotive system, netbooks, tablets, and set-top boxes.
Nokia still plans on releasing a MeeGo product later this year.
