Nokia / Intel: Meego 1.1 Video Demo Shows Multitasking

As far as I’m concerned the thing holding back Nokia over the last few years has been Symbian, I feel as though Symbian^3 is a step in the right direction, however I am far more excited about Nokia and Intel’s Meego OS.

We have recently come across a hands-on demo video showing off Meego 1.1, the audio isn’t all that clear and the person talking sounds a little like a German Mayor Quimby from The Simpsons, however if you ignore all of this you can see that the Meego platform is certainly coming along.

The video shows that Meego 1.1 is not yet ready for release (this is most evident when switching between landscape and portrait orientation), however I think that Meego’s multitasking capabilities and notifications look pretty strong.

With Meego not launching until 2011 developers have plenty of time to build on the strong-looking foundations we have seen, however only time will tell whether Meego will become a true competitor to Android and iOS.

Do you think Meego will become a real player in the mobile OS market?
