MeeGo Smart TV working group formedl

At the IPTV World Forum, the Linux Foundation introduced the MeeGo Smart TV Working Group (pdf). Already, the group includes such high-profile members as Nokia, Siemens and Intel, along with Sigma Designs and MIPS Technologies, among others. These companies will work along with cable providers to create and grow out a system of developers and content providers for smart TVs.

The working group plans to meet twice a year, with the first meeting in April. Not many specifics were revealed so far, but the working group will start by "defining software components" to standardize the platform and competitively differentiate the platform in the TV market thanks to tools like the Qt developer network.
