In light of their recent partnership with Microsoft to dress their smartphones in the Windows Phone 7 OS, Nokia seems to be putting their promising MeeGo mobile platform on the back burner. They are only scheduled to release one device sporting MeeGo this year due to the shifted focus to WP7 in an attempt to revive their mobile phone market position.
Apparently LG sees promise in the MeeGo platform and aren’t going to let it sit stagnant.
According to Reuters,LG Electronics has stepped in to fill the void by joining a working group with ZTE and China Mobile intent on developing a handset version of the software. This,according to a member of the MeeGo technical steering group,Valtteri Halla,speaking at a developer conference today.
I don’t know about you, but I am intrigued by the MeeGo platform and am curious to see how LG’s efforts pan out.
