Intel Sticking with MeeGo – ‘Not Blinking’ on Support of the OS

Posted by at 10:55 am on February 11, 2011

Nokia’s decision to switch to Windows Phone for its devices has triggered harsh reactions from Intel. Intel in a statement said it was “disappointed” with Nokia but said it was “not blinking” on supporting MeeGo. The chip designer said to Laptop it already supported other operating systems and that there were other platforms besides phones to support.

“We remain committed and welcome Nokia’s continued contribution to MeeGo open source,” it said. “MeeGo is not just a phone OS, it supports multiple devices. And we’re seeing momentum across multiple segments — automotive systems, netbooks, tablets, set-top boxes and our Intel silicon will be in a phone that ships this year.” That phone is most likely the Aava Core.

Intel’s loss of Nokia as a phone manufacturer is a major hit to its mobile plans.
