MeeGo doing Java faster than Android 2.2, Nokia rejoices

The open source MeeGo project combines Intel's Moblin with Nokia's Maemo Linux-based mobile platforms. It is a complete Linux OS (unlike Android, which only uses the kernel, and is suited to smartphones mostly), and viewed by Nokia as the future of their pocket computers that will also happen to be phones.

A prototype smartphone from Aava with Intel's 1.5GHz Atom Z600 CPU seems to have ended up in the hands of a reviewer over at Carrypad, and he put the handset through some speed tests. Android 2.2 is supposed to run JavaScript pretty fast already, but Aava's phone came ahead with about 25% improvement over it, and is almost twice faster than an iPhone 4 in that respect.

It is not entirely clear who flexes muscles here - MeeGo itself, or the 1.5GHz CPU - but we guess Nokia could be happy for a short while anyway.
