Right now people developed apps for Android and for Apple’s OS and some for Microsoft Mobile. It would be hard to make people develop the things also for Meego. It is not just a “recompile and GO”.. I agree with you in terms of speed , but sincerely, in this world they don’t really optimize the software anyway. What is to optimize on “cook books” or “how to find your way in the wild” apps :)

@Krutch, sorry I didn't mean to claim you were wrong about products supporting Android apps on top of Meego, I meant that Meego's strategy wasn't to run others applications, but to create an apps platform for Meego to compete with Android and others. I don't see the Android Apps on top of other ecosystem working real well. Why not just support Android if that your goal?

"We will find other partners," he concluded. hmmm let be sceptical who can be partner of intel's Meego. Samsung - Big player, not using only one OS but going in parallel with many. Bada, WM and Android, why to go for another challenge where biggest rival left ship already. LG - Hard player, beaten warrior, as like samsung using different 'OS' strategy but again not suitable to jump in an start-up adventure. HTC - Who might be interested as left alone by Android(google) however they also tied up with WM. Why to go with tyro guy Sony-Ericsson - Another Android fun aimed for middle class phones. Not suitable also. Perhaps ZTE or Huawei who might be interested to join to team up with intel but i dont think its feasible. If we just see example of Palm WebOS and HPs huge efforts to promote it as competitor to Android, Bada, WM and iOS, i believe intel should stop wasting money on a dead-end project. The OS market is almost at satisfaction and most importantly intel isnt a phone brand as like Samsung who can eat home made pie (Bada)

As far as I know now they partnered with Acer to get some tablet out with Atom and Android… I think that if one brings yet another OS out with nothing really to support it, like running already existing apps from competitors it is meant to fail.. Probably it is going to fail anyway since Intel is going aggressively Android. (And yes you cannot find the info all around the block… But take a look on job offers posted by Intel in new centers and you will observe some trends :P )

I don't think @Krutsch is correct in Meego supporting Android applications, but Intel has always been very OS agnostic, supporting Windows, Linux, MacOS on PCs and even Android on the GoogleTV boxes. Their approach seems to be to try to be the best platform no matter the OS. It doesn't really make sense for Intel to not support an OS.

how do you know this? I have not read it anywhere. Maybe Meego is not a competitor to Andriod but also Intel does not have plan to support Android either, as far as the news i have read.

The strategy with Meego was/(is) : to support applications from all other competing operating systems. Android is not the competition as someone mentioned, but more another race horse with that Intel is going. It is kind of known that Google and Intel work together for in terms of Android…
