The WeTab is set to be the first device to showcase the Nokia and Intel’s MeeGo OS, and will begin shipping early next week. The WeTab is built on the MeeGo 1.0 Framework and boasts start up times of a mere 16 seconds. Global release is not yet confirmed however Germany will retain exclusivity until then.
The Chief Executive of Co-Founder 4tiitoo, Stephan Odorfer, stated during a keynote at IDF 2010 that, “We started this project about three years ago on Ubuntu but switched to MeeGo a couple of months ago. We actually thought MeeGo was a very optimised system for tablets… a comprehensive operating system but very light.”
The tablet boasts boot up times of just 16 seconds, with one second recovery time for when it goes to sleep. It also has support for Adobe Air and Android applications.Tags | Breaking News, Hardware, Industry, Internet, Internet Tablet, Meego, MeeGo 1.0, MeeGo Tablet, Nokia, Quanta Redvale Tablet, Tablet, WeTab
