Run with MeeGo
Any device that will run MeeGo needs two things: the MeeGo core software stack and the MeeGo User eXperience (UX) for that specific device, although you are not limited to using the MeeGo UX, and you can create and deploy your own branded UX. Currently, MeeGo is available for Netbooks, IVI and handsets.
The MeeGo Core 1.1 release provides a common base operating system for the user experiences of all supported device categories. It provides a complete set of enabling technologies for mobile computing. The MeeGo stack contains Linux kernel 2.6.35, X.org server 1.9.0, Web Runtime, Qt 4.7 and Qt Mobility 1.0.2, supporting the contacts, location, messaging, multimedia, and sensor and service frameworks. It also includes a number of leading-edge components, such as the oFono telephony stack, the ConnMan connection manager, the Tracker data indexer, the Telepathy real-time communications framework, the Buteo sync framework and many more.
These technologies are brought to application developers through the MeeGo API, which is based on Qt and other technologies, such as the MeeGo Touch Framework. With the latest Qt version 4.7, the MeeGo developer experience is now enhanced with the introduction of QML, the easy-to-use scripting technology for animated touch-enabled GUI apps.
