Comparing Netbook Desktops - Part 4, MeeGo

After having looked at three more or less "traditional" Linux desktops on a netbook - Ubuntu Unity, KDE Plasma Netbook and Jolicloud - now I am going to look at a very un-traditional desktop, MeeGo. Descended from the Moblin project, and now being developed jointly by Intel and Nokia, MeeGo is intended to be a user interface for the entire range of mobile products, including netbooks, tablets, smart phones and more.

Intel Atom Developer's Program beta SDK now available

I have a MSI Wind loaded up with Windows 7 Ultimate and find it to be a very good mobile solution that gives me good battery life and is easy to carry in my bag. I may actually sell it soon and pick up a Nokia Booklet 3G, especially after reading Michael's four reasons to buy one. There have been arguments for and against the netbook idea, but it is hard to argue that they are not successful with forecasts predicting more than 50 million Intel-based units may be sold by the end of this year. Intel recognizes the netbooks are here to stay and to foster that adoption they announced that developers can submit applications created with the help of the Intel Atom Developer's Program SDK.

MobileTechRoundup show #179; back to T-Mobile and some netbook chat

I tried to move my entire five line family plan to AT&T just about a month ago as I discussed a bit in MobileTechRoundup show #177, but this ended up being a failed experiment as I detail my move back to my old friend T-Mobile in MobileTechRoundup show #179. James, Kevin, and I also talked about the HP Mini 5150 and Toshiba NB205 netbooks. Two phones I checked out recently include the myTouch 3G and BlackBerry Curve 8520, one of which I have now purchased.

$599 Viliv S5 ultra portable PC is looking good

I owned a couple UMPC devices in the past (Samsung Q1 and Fujitsu U810), but then decided to stick with a MSI Wind netbook for my mobile computing needs. James has me actually considering a new slate ultra-portable computer though with his extensive posts on the upcoming Viliv S5 device. This computer is quite compact and has some great specs such as the 1.33 GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 60GB hard drive, 4.8 inch 1024x600 resolution touch screen display, WiFi, Bluetooth, integrated GPS receiver, and Windows XP.

Is this newest Apple netbook rumor just more wishful thinking?

The news has been a bit slow here on The Mobile Gadgeteer so let's start off this week with another Apple netbook rumor. As jkOnTheRun is reporting, DigiTimes is reporting that Wintek claims to have a contract for a touchscreen Apple netbook. The Apple netbook rumors have been around for some time and in most cases I think it is people dreaming about such a device rather than a story with actual evidence. This one may turn out to be the same wishful thinking too.
