MeeGo as a set-top box (by Amino)
Following similar attempts by other mobile software houses like Google and Apple, Nokia and Intel’s MeeGo is being targeted at products above and beyond the phone and tablet form factors that we’re all so interested in. Much like Google’s offerings, MeeGo has been adopted and trialed in a number of instances including set-top boxes. The video after the break shows a demonstration of a TV based solution by Amino demonstrated at the Intel Developer Forum in September of this year.
In my opinion, Internet connected TV’s are the way forward especially with the ridiculously high prices of cable and current television offerings.
An article written by the developers themselves speaks to the speed of development due to the Linux roots of the OS and the increased flexibility for development due to the presence of Qt and it’s multiple language bindings. Bodes well for Qt and MeeGo development on the whole doesn’t it :).
