N900 with MeeGo gets full 3G call hooks
The MeeGo mobile OS team today said that it had successfully switched on calling for the Nokia N900. The build lets users try the new mobile OS with full 3G voice support. It remains a test feature and still needs a very recent build, but it should give users a simple transition to MeeGo without having to lose the core phone function.
N900 owners should also soon have an option to dual-boot between MeeGo and the phone's original Maemo through a maintenance update, developer Harri Hakulinen wrote.
The contributor also confirmed that the MeeGo 1.1 update was imminent and that the final bugs were being cleaned up before it shipped. MeeGo 1.2, the fix key to bringing the Intel joint project to phones, has "already started" and should carry new camera and graphics support.
