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?

First Screenshots Of MeeGo Emerge

Intel is holding its developer centric conference, IDF in China and that has brought up some interesting information about MeeGo on handheld devices. We have a handset feature list and a few screenshots of the OS. What is not clear is whether this is what Intel is proposing or something which has been agreed on by Nokia.

If you look at the chart above, under the user experience tab, Display Orientation is mentioned and this is clear indication that portrait mode is being worked upon in MeeGo. All the other core functionality that you would expect in Nokia devices is also present.

These screenshots clearly showcase portrait mode functionality, but what should be kept in mind is that they are in no way depec tive of what the final UI might look like when Nokia launches its devices. It will probably help shape MeeGo 1.0 but what Nokia does to the UI on top of that is anyone’s guess.

As you can see, MeeGo will look very different from what Maemo 5 looks like today. Interesting times.
