MeeGo doing Java faster than Android 2.2, Nokia rejoices

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.

Besides name similarities, JavaScript is totally different from Java. Like Apfel (apple) and Apfelsine (orange).

finally, Nokia is going to make mobile computing realistic with MeeGo. I do expect that this kind of Operating System will be found on phones that has higher tech specs than typical smartphones since MeeGo is a Linux OS. This time, Nokia and consumers shall rejoice once the first MeeGo device is released.

I 've always said you can't cut Nokia out of the race... eventually they will get it right and this looks like stage 1 of them doingjust that...!

"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" Sounds like the writer making the comment and not actually Nokia. So you can probably put your usual redundant Nokia Ranting to a rest for awhile and actually try another forum You do have other interests other than obsessive Nokia Rants, don't you?

Hey guys!!!! Give Nokia a chance, not all system is good forever. For example the Apple pc in the early 80s where they are on the top of the chart and then they are beaten by IBM pc in the late 80s.

So let me understand Nokia is happy because of one guy who made one test of one web application on one phone which contains hardware specs not yet released to the market, and an OS not yet fully done. Boy is it easy to get Nokia happy these days...

Damn, just don't quit, do you? Still spamming Nokia articles. Give it a rest already. Go hit up an android or iphone article.

You really have to reply to every post of mine, do you? Do you know that it's called spam? reported.

6. thatdude1 unregistered

And YOU really have to make a comment about EVERY Nokia article. And negative at that. That's called spam as well. You, too, have been reported. What a spam bot.

SPAM! SPAM! SPAM! Is that all you do is spam Nokia articles?! Did you date a girl named Nokia and she wound up sleeping with your more affluent, better looking brother? Were you in prison once and a big burly 800 pound guy made you his "woman"? Give it a rest already!

8. ilia1986 unregistered

reported. I will ignore your posts from now on. It's easy as I can just -1 you both, and the posts will collapse. I hope they ban you soon enough..

The same can and will be done to. When you stop spamming Nokia articles with your negative nonsense, then maybe you won't get replies to your comments.

10. digitaljedi unregistered

Same will be done to you spam bot. All you do is spam Nokia articles. It's sickening. And why do you think you're the one with all the negative marks on everyone of your posts?! Because all you do is spam with nothing constructive to say.
