Intel gives MeeGo first real demo

Intel took the opportunity at its Developer Forum to show MeeGo working both on a netbook as well as across multiple devices. The OS takes advantage of the larger screen and shows a very visual interface with apps and other sections organized into tabs. The Linux-based OS will have direct hooks into Intel's AppUp software store as well as social networking, with many apps and other updates coming near-automatically.

The chipmaker has also demonstrated the OS working on phones and took advantage of the opportunity to show a unique media sync feature. Video played on one MeeGo device can have its progress automatically carry over to other devices that recognize the feature, picking up where it left off. A certain degree of sync will also exist in other areas, as RFID can be used to send data from one MeeGo device to another as well as suggest apps for necessary features.

MeeGo is due to ship in the second half of the year and will show up first on the LG GW990 for phones. Netbooks and others are likely to follow.
