A video has appeared on YouTube that purports to show Nokia's implementation of the upcoming MeeGo mobile operating system.

The MeeGo Linux distribution, announced in February, is the child of Nokia's Maemo OS — as used in the N900 smartphone — and Intel's netbook-centric Moblin distro. The basic netbook version of MeeGo has already made an appearance, but nothing has been seen of the mobile version until now.

The YouTube video uploaded on Monday was, according to its blurb, "captured during a survey on mobile phones". Nokia's Ovi store can be seen, and a small legend in the bottom left-hand corner reads: "copyright Nokia 2009/2010 – Secret".

ZDNet UK asked Nokia to verify the video's authenticity on Tuesday, but the phonemaker refused to comment.
