LG embraces MeeGo, to showcase smartphone and tablet prototypes in May
Just when you thought MeeGo was on its
way to slow, but certain demise, LG seems to have embraced it in a rejuvenating hug. The company will showcase prototypes running ports
of MeeGo and that includes both smartphones and tablets. We're still far from an official
After Nokia announced it's largely stepping away from MeeGo with only one experimental device to be released, the platform was left solely in the hands of Intel. MeeGo might be in its early stages, but it does give the much needed differentiation and that's what might attract more companies to it. In the case of LG, we'll have various prototypes showcasing where's MeeGo gone so far. It will all happen at a press conference dedicated to the platform at the end of May, so stay tuned.

Like the risky move. LG still is a a large enough player (#3 overall in total sales of all basic/feature/smart phones, if memory serves) that they can role the dice on an OS that Nokia already has poured money into initial development. If it flops, they are out only the devices they lost money on. LG can absorb that. If it is any kind of success, LG has a chance to develop MEEGO into a great platform.
