LG is holding a session at the MeeGo Conference next month where the company will show off devices running MeeGo, including tablets, phones, and in-vehicle entertainment systems. It’s not clear at the moment if this means that LG will definitely be bringing these devices to market, but it at least shows that the company is putting some of its research dollars into MeeGo.

MeeGo is an open source Linux-based operating system designed for mobile devices including netbooks, tablets, smartphones, and in-car systems.

Nokia and Intel were the primary backers of the project initially, but with Nokia throwing its weight behind Windows Phone 7, it’s starting to look like LG might be the first big name electronics company to produce a MeeGo phone… or at least to show one off at a trade show.

One reply on “LG working on MeeGo Linux tablets, phones, and more?”

  1. I believe that LG has been an early and active strategic partner with Intel with respect to its overtures towards the handheld computing market, as evidenced by the LG GW990 which LG built around Intel’s Moorestown platform.

    Also, you write that “MeeGo is an open source Linux-based operating…”, and I believe that you’ve omitted the word “system”. However, it’s probably more useful to accurately identify MeeGo as a GNU/Linux distribution, like Red Hat or Ubuntu, rather than just a Linux-based operating system, like Android or WebOS. The difference between a distribution of Linux and a Linux-based operating system is similar to the difference between a juice made out of nothing but fresh-pressed apples and an apple-flavored juice. It’s not to say that one is better than the other, but if you want something close to eating an apple then knowing what’s in your cup is important.
