LG GW990 to be first MeeGo phone

updated 09:45 am EST, Tue February 16, 2010

First phone with Intel CPU will also use Intel OS

Just one day after the announcement that Nokia and Intel would be merging their respective mobile Linux versions, LG has confirmed that its GW990 smartphone would use the new MeeGo OS. The GW990 had originally been slated to use Intel's Linux-based OS, Moblin. It will likely be the first MeeGo phone to be released.

Whether this holds will depend on Nokia making a similar transition from its own Maemo platform for the N900. Nokia and Intel have also hinted at other devices in development for the new jointly developed OS.

LG will release the GW990 in Korea in the second half of 2010 and is likely to make it available in other countries as well. It should be the first phone based on an Intel processor and will use the upcoming Moorestown platform to fit an Atom into the normally tight spaces of a smartphone. [via Gearlog]
