MeeGo, the open source, Linux-based operating system that combines Intel's Moblin project and Nokia's Maemo smartphone OS, is now available for the Nokia N900. Though Nokia said yesterday on its official blog that it will not be offering a full scale commercial upgrade for the Nokia N900, the MeeGo group has released the MeeGo v1.0 Core Software Platform, which supports the N900 in addition to a number of Intel Atom based netbooks. The MeeGo v1.0 release includes a 2D / 3D graphics stack, Qt 4.6, media frameworks and a next generation file system. Voice and data connectivity, in addition to Bluetooth compatibility, are also part of the release. Nokia will continue to support Maemo on the N900, as evidenced by a software update to version 1.2 released yesterday.
