LG embraces MeeGo, to showcase smartphone and tablet prototypes in May

Just when you thought MeeGo was on itsway to slow, but certain demise, LG seems to have embraced it in a rejuvenating hug. The company will showcase prototypes running portsof MeeGo and that includes both smartphones and tablets. We're still far from an officialdevice, though.

After Nokia announced it's largely stepping away fromMeeGo with only one experimental device to be released, the platform wasleft solely in the hands of Intel. MeeGo might be in its earlystages, but it does give the much needed differentiation and that'swhat might attract more companies to it. In the case of LG, we'llhave various prototypes showcasing where's MeeGo gone so far. It willall happen at a press conference dedicated to the platform at the end ofMay, 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.
