Bangalore: Few weeks ago, Nokia and Intel had announced that they will be combining their open source operating systems, which formed MeeGo. Now, the companies have decided to make Meego open for business as well.

In a blog post on the MeeGo site, Director of Intel’s Open Source Technology Center – Imad Sousou – said: “Today is the culmination of a huge effort by the worldwide Nokia and Intel teams to share the MeeGo operating system code with the open source community. This is the latest step in the full merger of Maemo and Moblin, and we are happy to open the repositories and move the ongoing development work into the open – as we set out to do from the beginning.”

Developers can now get hold of the MeeGo distribution infrastructure and the OS base including the Linux kernel, the OS infrastructure and the middleware layer. MeeGo is intended to provide a common platform for all types of mobile computing, including phones, netbooks, IVI and TVs, reports HEXUS. channel.

Intel and Nokia are trying to take on Android with MeeGo and will be hoping a greater range of applications will give it a competitive advantage.

However, The N900 won’t be seeing MeeGo anytime soon and Nokia is working on v1.2 of the software for that handset.
