Videos and presentations about MeeGo at Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit
Dawn Foster, the MeeGo Community Manager from Intel, has posted the videos and presentations from the talks given on the first day of the Linux Foundation Collaboration in San Francisco in April. The MeeGo project was featured in two keynotes and an all day session during the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit. It was a great opportunity for me to meet more of the people who are contributing to MeeGo in person, and I was very happy with the MeeGo content at the event. In addition to great presentations, we had a lot of audience engagement, questions and discussion, which is critical during this early period for the project. The MeeGo workgroup sessions on the second day (that contain most of the interesting) were also recorded by Miia Ranta, although they are not yet online, but hopefully should be soon.

LG's Atom-based "MeeGo" (i.e. Moblin) device canned
LG was to be the first company to release a proper MeeGo-based cellular device with their Atom-based GW990 that had been due out later in the year. Unfortunately it seems as if the concept device has been removed from LG's product roadmap. Whether this is due to power issues putting Atom into a cellular device, the Moblin-to-MeeGo shift (the GW990 was announced before MeeGo) or something else is unknown. The disappearance of the GW990 should likely not be taken as a foundering of LG's support of MeeGo or open source, however, as the company announced both its backing of MeeGo and its entrance to the Linux Foundation membership at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in San Francisco in April. Revealing the news, Engadget weren't impressed by the fact that LG was positioning the phone as a closed device back at CES.
