BARCELONA--Intel has shown off a developer preview of the tablet user interface for its MeeGo Linux operating system at Mobile World Congress here.
At the same time today, the company also addressed Nokia's withdrawal from the long-term development of MeeGo for mobile phones, with software and services chief Renee James saying the company was "disappointed" with its Finnish partner.
The user interface is based on dynamic panels and does not resemble the Netbook variant of MeeGo--the only version to be shown off so far on a mobile computing device. The tablet UI was demonstrated by Intel systems software chief Doug Fisher, who said it was "centralized around the user...rather than applications."
