First, for those unfamiliar with the LG GW990
, we'll explain that it was first introduced in January, and was going to be a powerful smartphone running the Moblin 2.1 OS
with the help of Intel's Moorestown platform, which is based on the Atom core. Think of it as a competition to Qualcomm's Snapdragon. The GW990 was going to be a half smartphone, half tablet device, equipped with a 4.8-inch screen with a resolution of 1024x480 pixels and 5MP camera.
We were pretty eager to meet this device in person, but unfortunately LG has now told us that the whole LG GW990 thing was just a concept and that such a phone will not be released. What a pity! Because we actually found this one quite impressive. Plus, we love new mobile operating systems. Anyways, we hope a real device running on MeeGo
will soon see the light of day.
