Nokia N900 PR 1.3 Firmware To Bring Dual Boot For MeeGo
It seems that after all the controversy of whether or not the Nokia N900 will be receiving a Meego update, Nokia has finally decided that current Maemo 5 users will receive a Meego update via a dual boot option at start up. Hit the jump to find out more.
Harri Hakulinen, N900 Project Lead at Nokia posted an article on the Meego Blog earlier today discussing the Nokia N900. He mentions that the PR 1.3 Firmware Update for the N900 is due very soon and that the option to use Meego on the device will be available via a dual boot option. This means users will be able to continue enjoying their Maemo 5 OS as they have it now, but also will be able to test out the new Meego OS. This is what he had to say in his article
“On the Maemo side, there have been interesting, supporting developments going on, as well. The PR 1.3 update is quite close now, and with that you can easily dual boot between Maemo and Meego on your N900. There is also a possibility of developing applications supporting both operating systems, based on Qt and Qt Mobility APIs on the Maemo side. It means that you can develop once in PC with Qt Creator, and test your applications on both Maemo and MeeGo, directly on your N900 device!”
This is great news for all Nokia N900 owners as it means that the investment in the Nokia N900 won’t be short lived. Also the option to dual boot will let users choose whether they want to use the new Meego OS or stick to the familiar Maemo 5 OS. Leave your comments below and let us know how you feel about this.
