Demo of MeeGo 1.0 seen on a handful of devices
MeeGo may not have the limelight when compared to some of the other mobile platforms, but the latest videos to showcase its possibilities makes you wonder what is in to store down the road. During the Intel Developer Forum 2010 held in Beijing, Intel shows off the user interface of MeeGo 1.0 running on an Acer netbook while another video shows some of its syncing capabilities through the use of various gadgets. The MeeGo 1.0 interface looks pretty simple for right now as there are some common icons that'll jump you into specific apps like the tasks and appointments. When they demo a video that's playing on the netbook first, they seemingly show how it can be easily be incorporated with a television, smartphone, and digital coupon machine that's also running the MeeGo 1.0 platform. As you can see, there is still a slight lag when they transition from the netbook to the television, but with more fine tuning, it could potentially become an insignificant thing. One of the last things they show off is how MeeGo works with a coupon machine which links up to the smartphone through an RFID tag scan. This cross enabled platform surely has some strengths that are already clearly seen so early in its life span, but there will surely be no shortage of surprises expected out of MeeGo as time passes.
