MeeGo a Linux based platform recently created by Nokia, Intel, and The Linux foundation link to the project here MeeGo. Essentially it a Linux distribution that can run on multiple hardware platforms Smartphones, Netbooks, Gps units, and connected TV's. Programing is done by the qt framework. Some things it needs to succeed because many platforms have come and gone uiq, WebOs, Windows Mobile and others. What in my opinion the platform needs to succeed. Developer interest- Why do we need yet another platform? We already have so many Linux based platforms. Why do developers need to create applications for MeeGo? OEM Interest- Why should OEMS create devices running MeeGo? Future- Does MeeGo really have a future in the marketplace? Network Operator Interest- Why Would carriers want to sell flagship devices with MeeGo? Marketing- Will there be good marketing for MeeGo devices? Selling Point- What would be considered a killer feature? Example Android had intrgration with Google services, Apple has there ecosystem, Blackberry has email and messaging, and WebOs (yah it still exists) excellent multitasking and notifications. I just named many of the reasons why platforms have failed in the past. Will be able to avoid those or will end up being just another dead platform? Theses questions can have any answers.
