Nokia may not want anything more to do with MeeGo, but it seems new suitor LG has taken the platform on wholeheartedly, and could have its first prototypes ready as soon as next month.
That's the claim being made by MeeGo Experts, with the site revealing that LG will show its MeeGo hand during a special session of the MeeGo Conference in San Francisco next month.
The news that LG had taken on the role of hardware partner alongside Intel to push MeeGo forward only broke a few weeks ago, but if MeeGo Experts' claim is to be believed, LG has clearly been developing its plans for the platform for some time now.
Ironically, the biggest criticism of the Nokia-Intel partnership on MeeGo was the length of time it was taking to get some actual hardware put together. But LG seems ready to rock and roll, though it will no doubt have been able to build on the work already done.
The MeeGo Conference runs from May 23 to 25, and the session expected to see the big reveal from LG is snappily titled “Porting of MeeGo on LGE Multiple Smart Devices and Introduction on LGE's Open Source Contribution Plan for Meego”.
The session summary is a little easier to digest, revealing that the plan is “to show LGE MeeGo Devices and present porting experience of MeeGo 1.2 into multiple LG devices”.
Those multiple devices are being tipped to include not just smartphones, but tablets and in-car entertainment systems too.
