Leaks suggest MeeGo device from Nokia and Intel coming soon

Nokia logoNokia, a company that last made news for cancelling its X7 smartphone's U.S. launch, has an opportunity to make some positive headlines at GSMA's Mobile World Congress in two weeks. According to a report in The Nokia Blog, an event at MWC called Intel AppUp Application Lab will showcase the first hardware running the MeeGo mobile operating system.

Though the registration form for the event does not expressly mention that MeeGo will be shown running on dedicated hardware, but the MeeGo team had a workable version of MeeGo for tablets at the same time as it released the very first version of MeeGo for handsets, and hardware manufacturers Asus and Acer have pledged support for the OS. Recently-leaked information about a prototype Nokia tablet has led some to believe there may be a device ready to show off for MWC.

According to bug reports, the tablet has an Intel 1.6 GHz Medfield CPU with 1 GB RAM, a 200 MHz GPU, a 480 x 854 screen reportedly larger than 4" in size. It could also potentially be the device that Senior vice president and general manager of Intel's Ultra Mobility Group, Anand Chandrasekher, briefly showed off at an Intel conference last week.
