Fujitsu MeeGo Netbooks Shipping Now

Following on from the announced partnership between Nokia and Microsoft we thought this would mean the end of the MeeGo OS, this seems to not be the case as Fujitsu have just started shipping its MeeGo netbooks to selected markets.

The Linux based open source operating system was expected to disappear from existence following this new joint venture, this is now not as true as once thought. According to this post from Laptopmag.com, Fujitsu have just started shipping its MH330 netbook (which was once running Windows) with MeeGo OS to countries like Russia and other parts of Asia.

This trendy little device is powered by an Intel Atom 1.6GHz N450 processor, along with this it also hosts an array of features like a 10.1inch wide display, 250GB hard disk, 2.1 Bluetooth and integrated speakers. You can read more on the specs by following this link to the official page.

With this current mash up of this OS and netbook MeeGo hope to provide users with a simple tab-based UI, offering them a good strong web experience and some nice apps with the potential of many more once Intel launches a MeeGo app store.

Though this netbook seems to be mediocre compared to other devices that have just been announced like the Motorola Xoom or Acer Iconia W500 tab, it would appear to us that this device could be aimed towards a possible first time buyer who doesn’t want or need all the other features that other devices have to offer.

What are your thoughts on this device having the MeeGo twist?
