Intel demoes the MeeGo experience on tablets (video)

The Elopocalypse of recent days left Intel disappointed and alone when it comes to MeeGo, but the company is nonetheless committed to the OS as even in the beginning of MWC there were huge posters showing MeeGo devices. Intel also continues with its developer programs via the App Up center. But let's get down to business – tablets running the current version of MeeGo were on display at MWC and Intel demoed the capabilities of the OS in a series of promo videos.

The first thing you notice on the MeeGo homescreen is the presence of multiple panels, which you can easily disable thus personalizing its looks. Nothing particularly flashy or mind blowing, and we could notice a slight lag even during the demonstations, but hopefully Intel will manage to polish the OS in the near future. Finally, as an illustration to the current state of MeeGo, user experience design manager Darren Wilson noted: "A lot of other operating systems have got a lot of legacy, and they don't have the opportunity to push the boundries as we do." He also made a not-so-vague accusation that other companies only scale existing phone platform, while Intel is not "taking a handset UI and scaling it up to a tablet." Check out the promo videos below to get a better sense of MeeGo.

Meego is still in its infancy and it already looks better than WP7, lol, WP7 what a joke.
