MeeGo 1.1 Day 1 (MeeGo Phone UX)

Today, the MeeGo project announced and presented their Day 1 release, a developers’ preview of their upcoming OS and UI for mobile devices.

The Day 1 release is the first taste that the community at large has to view, interact and provide feedback on the newest Linux-based OS to hit the block. Given that this isn’t even remotely close to a finished product there are quite a few bugs associated with the release that will obviously be dealt with in due course. I’ll reiterate that this isn’t something for Average Joe’s that just so happen to own the N900. You’ve been warned!

Those interested can download ROM images for the new OS for their Atom powered  netbooks and/or handsets or for their N900’s at the following link.

There are a view screenshots of the  OS available  right now from the MeeGo blog itself and it’s expected that videos from persons that have downloaded and used the OS will obviously come along as time goes by.

An image taster and link to the MeeGo blog are provided below.

Note that these pictures are of a concept device.

    They haven’t categorically said what ratios are supported, guess i could do some photoshop measurement and get back to you 😛
    Edit

      Looks to be 854*480 or thereabouts.

    Not too keen on those icons. Why only 3×4? I wonder how the lock screen works.

    ROM Images for N900 :O

      You should download it, if you’ve got the balls 🙂

        I wouldn’t be able to do anything. N900 needs repair (USB broke) shhh.

        Taking it to repair tomo. Will have it out for a week (possibly 10 days or more)

    Looks nice, but something is telling me that this is more of mobling than maemo? am I right?

      Moblin to me wasn’t particularly attractive, at least the OS skins that were put on top of moblin. I wonder if Nokia is gonna stick a custom “maemo” skin on top of MeeGo or if they’re just gonna stick with the default.
      Btw, the UI is supposed to support theming. 🙂

    looks quite good, but on the other hand, would it be possible to run it also on the N8 instead of symbian^3?

    This UI is sad, sad… I like the space between phone numbers. It looks like iPhone. Good.
