Intel to continue working on MeeGo, despite Nokia exit

Intel logoAs Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop has recently confirmed that the company will quit its involvement in its co-developed MeeGo software platform with Intel, market watchers are becoming pessimistic toward MeeGo's future, but Intel, on the other hand, is set to continue working on MeeGo with plans already set through to the second quarter of 2012, according to market watchers.

In addition to netbooks and tablet PCs, Intel is ready to launch MeeGo v1.3 with support for smart TVs, car infotainment and multimedia handset devices in the fourth quarter and is set to launch v1.4 in the second quarter of 2012.

Intel will also launch a solution pairing its Atom processor with Google's latest Android system codenamed Ice Cream Sandwich in the first quarter of 2012, while the pairing with Windows 8 will come out as soon as the third quarter of 2012.

Intel has also been expanding its AppUp Center with over one million consumers already having downloaded applications from the store. IT players including Acer, India-based telecom carrier Reliance Communications, Indonesia-based telecom carrier SpeedUp, retailer Evernew, Malaysia-based retailer FOSA, and US-based retailers Awaken and Datavision have all recently announced they will join Intel's AppUp Center shortly.
