Why the hell would they spend years on MeeGo just to turn around and use a crippled OS?
I have to say this is one of the less ambiguous and more "reputable" leakes that have surfaced in a while. pretty much all the relevant specs were leaked, along what ever the hell else the bug report revealed.
Symbian is not MeeGo. The two are fundamentally different, so it's unfair to judge this phone based on previous Symbian phones (btw, Symbian was brilliant in its early years and still is great - the competition has just moved forward too fast for the relatively underfunded Symbian foundation to keep pace).
This looks intresting. It'll be one of the first true MeeGo smartphones and one of the first Intel powered smartphones. Both projects are a huge gamble, but I'm curious to see how it turns out.
The MeeGo is an OS for tablets, netbooks, televisions, video phones, and smartphones. Isn't it rather presumptuous to assume this is the specs of a smartphone over one of the other MeeGo devices?
I see bt, wlan, gps, nfc, 3 camers, HMDI, phisical keyboard, acceleromater,SDHC support, 1gbit network card, USB 1.1 and USB 2 plus other goddies. Sounds like too much hardware to fit into a phone, I'm thinking tablet.

hmm could you throw windows on this phone? Its the Moorestown CPU in there. Isnt that x86? So you could put windows on here and it would probably run pretty well. Seems to be about the same specs as most netbooks. 1.6ghz dual core, integrated graphics of some type. 1gb RAM and so on. That would be pretty sweet to have windows 7 on this thing. If you could only get it on there...
All the comments about Nokia, Symbian and battery consumption just goes to show how retard people really are. Meego is NOT Symbian... it is a follow on from the Maemo OS found on the N900 which received huge praise. Comments about battery consumption are dumb as we don't know yet and as many others have illuded too, other smart phones don't exactly have extensive battery life either.
"other smart phones don't exactly have extensive battery life either."
Well, I think the battery life is a fair statement. The average user of a smartphone is using the phone to talk, and surf the web, and navigation. Notice I said "Average" smartphone user. If the manufacturers would spend more time on making phones last longer, than trying to one-up each other in processing power and other features the average smartphone user will not normally use in day to day use, I think allot of us average smartphone users would be much happier.
This is the Intel Medfield Platform - Single chip 32nm SoC. The chip supports Android & Meego. The article is in reference to the bug list of the Nokia smartphone w/Meego. Due to Nokia's strategic tie-up with Intel... Nokia gets 1st dibs on launching the Medfield HW platform (Atom) with Meego on it. But rest assured that Intel will flog Medfield w/Android ported onto it.....LG will launch that platform on 2012.
Oh...those wondering about power consumption... 6 hrs talk time on the Infineon 3G chip (6260 - BTW, that is now formally an Intel chip). It also has a 5MP still camera, video camera, miniUSB & microSD ports.
