Pre-Alpha Meego Tablet UI Gets Demo'ed In HD: Impresses

We brought you news of a MeeGo tablet a little while back, but a detailed demo of its early MeeGo UI has just popped up in HD. The video clearly shows the paneled homescreen which holds your photos, videos, web feeds and other content in vertical columns that can be scrolled sideways. It automatically updates itself and also packs a deep level of social integration removing the need of dedicated apps.

It also has a simpler app launching screen which works just as well. MeeGo supports full blown multitasking, HD video playback, and five finger multitouch. The current demo comes with Intel’s App Up client fro downloading more apps, while the Nokia variant will probably come with the Ovi Store.

Apart from that the UI looks intuitive, fast and has all the eye candy that you could wish for. I have wanted Nokia to make a large screen internet tablet for a while now and it looks as if Nokia World will hold the key. The MeeGo tablet will give me an amazing web browser with flash and multiple video codecs, so I can virtually throw anything at it and it will play it. This is something the iPad cannot do and that’s why its not for me.

What do you think?

  1. This is not totally seamless yet as the iPad, but for a pre-alpha work it’s already very nice.
    I look forward to see more about this project, it’s very promising.

  2. Hi! Vaibhav,

    Have you managed to install MeeGo on the N900 and get it to work? I did attempt with the Nokia image but managed to only get a nice little tux on the top left of the screen and nothing else. Would love to hear if you managed to get it to work.



  3. Hi Kishore,

    As far as I know/remember, N900 Meego GUI is not yet released. All you get is a command line UI on a N900 when u install Meego.

    *pls correct me if I am wrong.
