Nokia and Intel announced a partnership last year that would have them working on projects together including Moblin. Today the two firms have announced that the partnership has resulted in a new OS for netbooks and smartphones called MeeGo.

 

The OS will be aimed at tablets, connected TVs, and in-vehicle systems as well. It offers the Qt application dev environment to allow apps to be written once and used on multiple platforms. The Linux Foundation will host MeeGo and the project is fully open source.
