We don’t get to hear much about MeeGo lately, and that’s because Intel and Nokia – the two companies behind the new OS – are quietly readying the platform for when the first devices based on it will hit the market.
Until then, Intel has reportedly held a conference in Moscow yesterday, where it showcased two new MeeGo devices.
One of them is a smartphone apparently called “Hi/Lo Vibrant.” Based on an Intel Atom processor, the handset features a touchscreen display (WVGA most likely), front-facing camera, and a 5MP camera with flash on the back.
The second new MeeGo device is a large tablet that we don’t know much about (it seems to have a front-facing camera, too):
When will these devices be available? I have no idea, but we could see them next year – assuming they’re not just prototypes.
