MeeGo "on wheels"

On July 23, the Linux Foundation and GENIVI Alliance , a group of companies supporting the development of a unified operating system for on-board automotive computers, announced that the MeeGo project was chosen as the basis for such a system.

The GENIVI Alliance includes BMW, General Motors, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Nissan, Renault, Hyundai, and about fifty more companies specializing in building embedded automobile systems. The choice of GENIVI, in many respects, was predetermined: firstly, it includes Intel itself - the main developer of MeeGo, and secondly, the previous contender for such a system was Moblin - the progenitor of MeeGo. Nokia’s active participation in this project also gives high hopes for further development of the platform.

Support from such car giants gives confidence that the MeeGo platform will develop even faster and will compete with Android and Apple iPhone / iPad not only in the market of car computers, but also smartphones and tablets.
MeeGo did not take long to wait and yesterday rolled out the first test version of the MeeGo for IVI assembly (In-Vehicle Infotainment, that is, an entertainment and information system for cars). This assembly includes a special panel for launching applications, a simple Navit navigator and a module for calls via Bluetooth.
