    About MeeGo

    The MeeGo project combines Intel’s Moblin™ and Nokia’s Maemo projects into one Linux-based, open source software platform for the next generation of computing devices. The MeeGo software platform is designed to give developers the broadest range of device segments to target for their applications, including netbooks and entry-level desktops, handheld computing and communications devices, in-vehicle infotainment devices, connected TVs, media phones and more – all using a common development framework, Qt.  For consumers, MeeGo will offer innovative application experiences that they can take from device to device.

    Hosted by the Linux Foundation. For more information on MeeGo, visit:
