Ternyata Masih Ada Secercah Harapan Untuk MeeGo: Intel Akan Tetap Meneruskan Perkembangan Sistem Operasi MeeGo, Dengan Ataupun Tanpa Nokia

Masa depan sistem operasi Symbian sudah ditentukan dengan jelas: akan berakhir. Hal ini terlihat dari 2 grafik yang dipresentasikan kemarin oleh CEO Nokia Stephen Elop dan CFO Nokia Timo Ihamuotila, pada acara Nokia’s Capital Markets Day. Lebih lengkapnya silakan baca di sini: Selamat Tinggal Symbian…!!!

Lalu bagaimana dengan nasib MeeGo???

Ternyata masih ada secercah harapan untuk MeeGo, karena Intel, partner joint venture Nokia untuk MeeGo, kemarin menyatakan komitmen mereka untuk tetap melanjutkan pengembangan produk MeeGo, dengan ataupun tanpa Nokia. Mereka juga menyatakan kekecewaannya terhadap keputusan Nokia yang tiba-tiba memutuskan untuk untuk beralih dari Symbian/MeeGo ke Windows Phone 7. Namun, Intel masih membuka pintu lebar-lebar untuk Nokia jika Nokia masih ingin tetap terlibat dalam pengembangan produk smartphone berbasis sistem operasi MeeGo.

Beberapa berita sehubungan hal tersebut di atas saya kutip di bawah ini.

Intel Won’t Forget About MeeGo

MeeGo was a Nokia/Intel joint venture aimed at producing an acceptably good Linux-based mobile platform for devices. Now that Nokia is going WinPho, however, it looks like MeeGo will soon get short shrift. But, if Intel has anything to say about it, things will remain on course as previously ordained.

In a short note, Intel informs the world that they’ll be sticking by the platform, thankyouverymuch, and nothing will change.

While we are disappointed with Nokia’s decision, Intel is not blinking on MeeGo. We remain committed and welcome Nokia’s continued contribution to MeeGo open source.

Our strategy has always been to provide choice when it comes to operating systems, a strategy that includes Windows, Android, and MeeGo. This is not changing.

MeeGo is not just a phone OS, it supports multiple devices. And we’re seeing momentum across multiple segments – automotive systems, netbooks, tablets, set-top boxes and our Intel silicon will be in a phone that ships this year.

Could MeeGo be Intel’s WebOS? This would assume that the company is looking into making its own hardware that would support MeeGo because there are few folks I’ve heard championing the platform. However, if you could stick it on a camera or a printer, it could be a good solution for those not wanting to go the way of embedded Android. Regardless, Intel is pretty adamant about it.

Intel to Continue Work on MeeGo

If Intel has its way, MeeGo won’t be fading away as quickly as Nokia wants it to. The open sourced operating system, which has yet to make a retail presence, is still part of Intel’s strategy, with or without Nokia. The company remarks:

While we are disappointed with Nokia’s decision, Intel is not blinking on MeeGo. We remain committed and welcome Nokia’s continued contribution to MeeGo open source.

Our strategy has always been to provide choice when it comes to operating systems, a strategy that includes Windows, Android, and MeeGo. This is not changing.

MeeGo is not just a phone OS, it supports multiple devices. And we’re seeing momentum across multiple segments – automotive systems, netbooks, tablets, set-top boxes and our Intel silicon will be in a phone that ships this year.

It’s hard to imagine Intel drumming up a new hardware partner at this point, given that most OEMs have already chosen their side of the smartphone wars. Though it’s unlikely, Intel could make its own hardware with MeeGo as a hedge against its other investments. Or, it can continue to work with non-phone partners to integrate MeeGo into other devices, like netbooks, tablets, etc.

Intel disappointed with Nokia, will continue work on MeeGo

With Nokia relegating its participation in the MeeGo smartphone operating system as an opportunity to learn, Intel is left somewhat in the lurch. Nokia was Intel’s primary partner on MeeGo, which was the result of combining Nokia’s Maemo and Intel’s Moblin Linux smartphone platforms.

But Intel says that MeeGo is not dead, and issued the following statement to Laptop Mag.

While we are disappointed with Nokia’s decision, Intel is not blinking on MeeGo. We remain committed and welcome Nokia’s continued contribution to MeeGo open source.

Our strategy has always been to provide choice when it comes to operating systems, a strategy that includes Windows, Android, and MeeGo. This is not changing.
