Amidst the flurry of new open-source phone operating systems, such as Samsung’s Bada, Symbian^3, and Android, Intel and Nokia have finally released a pre-release build of their MeeGo, yesterday.

A Linux-based system, MeeGo is a developer-friendly combination of its parent’s previous operating systems, Moblin and Maemo, and will be released as a completely open-source operating system.

The pre-release build MeeGo OS source code is currently only compatible with the Nokia N900, Intel’s Atom line of computers, and Atom-based mobile phones. It currently is geared towards back-end development, and developer tools, with no GUI or front-end interface as yet. The OS code can also be booted from a USB flash drive, apart from the device directly. Imad Sousou of MeeGo describes the build, "The MeeGo common core includes the various key subsystems including the core operating system libraries, the comms and telephony services, internet and social networking services, visual services, media services, data management, device services, and personal services."

A full release of the OS code is due around May. 2010. Learn more and download the code at the MeeGo site.
