COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - During our visit to the Intel booth during the show, we not only saw MeeGo running on a new Sony netbook, but we also got a chance to have a play around with MeeGo running on a new and unreleased Atom tablet.
Jim Huang, a Senior Technical Marketing Engineer chap at Intel, was on hand to give us a quick run-down on the Intel AppUp Center. What was cool is that we saw it running an app or two on an unreleased Atom-based tablet running the MeeGo Linux operating system. The particular tablet we saw is capable o five point multi-touch and as demonstrated in the hand painting app, it works rather well indeed.
If the big mighty Intel has its way and as we are led to believe by all the advertising around the Computex area in Taipei, Atom is everywhere and is changing everything, the AppUp Center could end up being a good win for the folks at Intel and disrupt things a little for Apple with its own app store on its mega popular i-whatever devices.
