The professional grade musician’s tablet from Indamixx – MeeGo powered Indamixx 2 Beta is available for purchasing!
There are two models available, for 699 and 799 USD. Oddly, the cheaper version comes with 250GB HDD (vs 160GB)
Other specifications include:
- – Transmission 5.0 OS (MeeGo Version)
- 1.66 GHz Intel Atom CPU (N450)
- 2GB RAM
Note – this is probably not the MeeGo tablet experience consumers are looking for, but it may be for those in the music industry (though I don’t know how much of it could simply be an app on a vanilla tablet itself).
Take this with a bucket of salt.
Nokia’s MeeGo tablet will be reaching Nokia fans from late 2011 according to knowyourmobile‘s anonymous source.
There are no further details, other than it’ll run on MeeGo. Their Nokia insider apparently says this information is correct. Could this be the Z500 “ARM based MeeGo Tablet” that Eldar tweeted about back in June, which later leaked itself on the Ovi Store?
Well this is the first “confirmation” of any rough date estimates for any Nokia MeeGo device. The MeeGo phone as far as we know is still pretty much a “2011” story.
Although MeeGo handset is no where near ready (both Vanilla and Nokia’s secret version that’s supposedly going to be amazing and have a different UI “Pattern”) it translates great on a bigger touch screen, despite the comments that a Phone and Tablet should have separate UI.
I guess the Maemo now MeeGo experience has always been tablet focused first (being developed on the “internet tablets).
I’d love 10” tablet with MeeGo handset UI vanilla or Nokia’s (well based on the leaked Nokia UI, though I have no idea if the supposed Amazing one will look anything like that). There’s no sign at the moment of any tablet sporting the pre-alpha tablet UI which impressed us all back in June this year.
Julien Fourgeaud, Former Nokia Senior Design Engineer, Road Map and Propositions at Symbian Foundation and now director of his own company, LeCatalyst, unboxes the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t which as one of the attendees at last week’s MeeGo Conference got absolutely FREE. It comes standard with Windows 7 but was immediately set up later for MeeGo (which Julien says took less than 9 minutes). The IdeaPad is a touch/netbook hybrid with a swivel multitouch LED screen. This particular model doesn’t appear to be one of the three models available from Lenovo as they all should have 2GB RAM but Julien says this only has 1GB. Moreover, despite the 1GB RAM, this is supplied with the 8 cell battery (reserved for the highest end S10). Processor should be the N470 then at 1.83GHz. This 8 cell battery is why it sticks out. It would be flush other wise with the 4-cell, though you do get 7-8h supposedly with the 8-cell.

My Dream Nokia #5: Nokia E10 MeeGo Phone-Tablet transformer with Foldable 6.5*4″ screen and solar panels #concept
This was found at concept-phones by Jim which happily sits in the Dream Nokia/Designs category. This one is pure design (less about tech specs).
Practicalities aside, this concept E10 transforms into a pocket monster (not a pokemon). As in it’s pocketable at first but then becomes this 6.5*4.0 tablet through some folding actions. I don’t think you need major origami skills but it is a touch fiddly.
This shouldn’t be too far into the future given the rate of advancement of flexible screens. But is this something you’d be interested in?
The designer is Chris Wang. These renders and sketches are absolutely beautiful and I’d like to see some more of his work (not sure where to go though).

Now in another video below we’re told that apps will open slowly due to unoptimized HARDWARE. (Hence why music player looks unresponsive). Check out that Windows Media Player 11 look and the cover-flow album art (made famous by Apple who were ordered to PAY $625m in damages for infringing such patents by Mirror Worlds).
There’s also the netbook version. Chippy notes that it’s not the complete end user product, something Linpus using to show off to customers.
Anyone missing the stock Pre-Alpha MeeGo Tablet UI
