While you won’t find a lot of netbooks with MeeGo Linux preloaded in the US right now, Russian PC maker DNS is showing off a 10 inch mini-laptop powered by the open source operating system. The folks at Netbook News got a chance to check it out recently.
The specs aren’t anything to write home about. The DNS netbook has a 1.5 GHz Intel Atom N550 dual core processor, Intel GMA 3150 graphics, a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive. It supports WiFi and Bluetooth and weighs about 2.4 pounds with a 3 cell, 24Whr battery.
The most distinctive feature is the operating system, which is unfortunately not really displayed n the video after the break.
MeeGo is a Linux-based operating system for phones, tablets, netbooks and other devices. It’s backed by Intel and Nokia, although Nokia has scaled back its MeeGo ambitions a bit since shifting its smartphone focus to Windows Phone 7.
