Intel and Nokia Team Up

Product imageIntel and Nokia have been outlining their plans to take over the mobile world with a joint partnership that has been streghthened over the past few months.

Both companies annouced a new “open ecosystem for rapid development of exciting new user experiences” culminating in MeeGo a Linux based platform that is to take on the likes of Android, Windows Mobile 7, iPhone OS and the Samsung Bada.

Being based around Linux has the perk of being open source which will allow developers to start building applications in a familiar environment.

MeeGo is a merger of Nokia’s Maemo and Intel’s Moblin Linux platforms. Intel have their own mobile chip called Moorestown and Nokia hardware sales have been lagging for months. Intel would love to enter the ever expanding smartphone market and with 70+ million iPhones already sold, Google getting in on the act with its much lauded Android OS and even Samsung having a go with its own community based platform called Bada, it isn’t a surprising development.

Our [Intel] vision for seamlessly communicating between computing devices from the home, auto, office or your pocket is taking a big step forward today with the introduction of MeeGo,” said Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini. “This is a foundational step in our evolving relationship with Nokia. The merging of these two important assets into an open source platform is critical toward providing a terrific experience across a variety of devices and gaining cross- industry support.”

“MeeGo will drive an even wider range of Internet computing and communication experiences for consumers, on new types of mobile devices,” said Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, CEO, Nokia. “Through open innovation, MeeGo will create an ecosystem that is second to none, drawing in players from different industries. It will support a range of business models across the value chain, building on the experience and expertise of Nokia, Intel and all those who will join us. Simply put, MeeGo heralds a new era of mobile computing.”

MeeGo just doesn’t sound very cool though.
