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. You can find out more about the operating system at MeeGo.com or by checking out previous coverage from Liliputing.

  1. Notice the windows logo key on the key board. It’s apparently Microsoft MeeGo edition. Lol. What a joke.
