MeeGo vs Android: 5 Reasons why MeeGo can’t compare with ANDROID

MeeGo vs Android

During a press event at the Mobile World Congress, Nokia and Intel announced the MeeGo platform, a merge of Maemo and Moblin. MeeGo will be rolled out on Media phones, Netbooks, Pocketables/Handhelds, In-car entertainment systems as well as Connected TVs.

In a classic 3-way clash of the Titans with Google clearly taking the lead, and Nokia/Intel deciding to join hands in reply.Meanwhile, the open-Community is getting really excited about MeeGo being an open platform.

Also for the first time are we seeing such major names backing an open-source initiative.

But is MeeGo the way to go??… Not Really.

Here are 5 MAJOR REASONS why MeeGo can’t Compare to ANDROID…

[5] Manners maketh a man, Services maketh a platform.

Google’s Android is NOT just another platform. Its a total new approach towards computing. What initially might seems like a innocent foray into mobile computing on the part of  the search-giant, has not yet been showcased to its fullest extent. Google plays a major role in connecting people with its wide plethora of services. Once the dust settles down ANDROID is the clear winner with a powerful back-end and content-delivery system that  has worked once for Google and totally decimated the opposition. Period.

[4] F.C.F.S.

First come first serve. Thats the rule-of-thumb in this generation of tech-driven innovation. Where Google scored was its early  entry into the market. Android was established at a time Symbian was dying a slow and painful death.

It was a totally unheard-of concept- “A major developer opening its source to the masses”. People embraced Android with open arms. And the constant support and community interest is currently reflected in the constantly evolving ANDROID. It seems a far cry for even NOKIA or INTEL to even make a dent in the  the massive  “Faithful” user-base which Google has acquired with Android.

[3]  Too many cooks…

Too many cooks spoil the broth. This is equally true for any device as well. Thats the only reason why Microsoft is Bleeding with every X-Box sold; and yet unable to do anything.

MeeGo is a Stop-Gap attempt on the part of Nokia/Intel and as such is not even a remotely comparable to Android. Industry Giants Nokia and Intel,though not exactly competing against each other,  are rivals competing for a larger market-share.

Also, while Nokia  has always played the “Symbian-card” to lock users in, Intel’s “Innovations” and feature-rich-HW have always been their selling point.

Now, in the case of MeeGo vs. Android, with neither of those factors in play, Nokia and Intel have been effectively “De-Fanged” in the battle against Google’s Android. Consequently, Android WINS!! [Q.E.D]


[2] Small is Big

Gone are the days when a few major players in the industry pushed their weight around and forced any technology on the masses. With numerous start-ups making a huge foray into the international market with their innovative ideas, the “Big-Guns” are forced to look at other strategies to make a stand in the global market.

Google opted smartly by embracing the emerging start-ups by building the Dalvik VM on top of LINUX. Add to that the fact that Java has a very widespread programmer-base, and programming for DalvikVM on Android is almost as if for the JVM itself.

In the Race against Android, MeeGo (which has yet to gain popularity on the developer side) is bound to fall further behind without the code-base and Dev-Environment familiarity that Android has today.

[1] The Best is Yet to come…

As is most technologies, the peak is attained a couple years after mass-adoption of the technology by the common man. Android as such is yet to attain the peak. Eventually, time will only tell who wins in the “BATTLE ROYALE” i.e. in “MeeGo vs. Android.

It is breaking performance barriers and is setting new standards.It has changed the perception of a mobile device in the eyes of the end-user. The kind of applications being developed for it are no less in features as compared to the PC versions. Hence, any other platform (let alone MeeGo) doesn’t stand a chance in the near foresee-able future;
B’coz whatever MeeGo can do, Android already does and Does it Better. ;-)

  1. [...] Quick thoughts on the Moblin & Maemo marriage. [...]

  2. hey , well i completely diasgree on the big names part bcoz wen anaroid was formed .. its a consortium kinda thing .. there were pretty big names attached to it .. like motorola . also anaroid though big with content is not even remotely comparable to linux’s array of applications which can be easily ported on maemo..

    and lastly beleive it or not all of anaroid in not open .

  3. Out of 5 reasons 4 reasons are carp. I am seeing Meego will capture the whole development community as well as the Embedded industry.
    I can give 6 reasons with out thinking much:
    1.) MeeGo can work on any Hardware platform like intel chips, X86 and ARM.
    2.) MeeGo Platform is completely open source.
    3.) MeeGo contains QT as UI development.
    4.) MeeGo Not locked to any language like JAVA.
    5.) MeeGo comes from already proven platform like Maemo.
    6.) Develop the application once and use it on many devices.

    I Think MeeGo has bright further.

    • @praveen Regarding ur doubts wrt Android-

      1. Android Too runs on multiple hardware platforms.
      U can get get a bootable ISO for ur PC here

      Its called Live-Android. U can read more about it here.

      http://code.google.com/p/live-android/

      2. Android is also an open-source initiative. The level of customisation possible is as good as Linux(if not more).

      Checkout http://www.youtube.com/v/0rITkt0bRs0 for an example of how much customisation “IS” possible with android.

      3. I agree Qt is a very good environment for designing apps. Especially for beginners.

      U can checkout ECLIPSE for a similar experience in App development for Android.

      Also get the ADT Plugin for rapid Design & Development of Android in ECLIPSE.

      4. Android is NOT “Locked” to JAVA. As much as i love programming in VB and C++, its not an easy choice to switch to JAVA for the sake of writing apps for Android. What might feel like an arbitrary choice for some, is a very carefully thought of decision on part of Google. In Fact considering the easy of writing code in Java and the rapid Deployment of Apps even in the initial design phase has won me over. I have started loving JAVA. [ ECLIPSE is the major reason i suspect ;-) ]

      5. I have absolutely no qualms against either Moblin or Maemo. But, to combine those two into a single package is a compromise at the best. On a community-project so huge, its not a good idea to have split-factions (that too from the beginning). To outgrow Android, MeeGo will have to overcome the warring-factions within. Not to mention the odds that Nokia & Intel decide to separate as easily as they decided to join hands.

      6. Since Android too was deigned to support multiple hw platforms (1.) U can develop an App once, and Re-Use it on many-many-many devices.

      I hope i have clarified any mis-conceptions about Android. :-)

      Regards
      CVS

      PS: Not that i agree about the 4/5 being “carp”,
      But, Which is the 1 reason that U do agree with?…

      • Do you really think a Dalvik VM can compete with Qt native app?? (I know there is NDK, still!)

      • Yes,we have to agree.Because Android is having such a quality that none of the OS comparable with this…

  4. [...] Why MeeGo can’t compare with Android [...]

  5. Hey ,i can not agree with that!!

  6. Geez and then theres Apple. Meego and Android better get together quick!

  7. I think you’re in many ways right. But MeeGo or Android getting outfitted with capability to run the other’s software is not impossible by any means. In fact even bog standard vanilla distros may start supporting Android packages at some point. That’s how an ecosystem based around open source software does work…

    At that point, I’ll not particularly care about market share anymore. The best tool for my needs is what matters, and the freedom and convenience to be able to pick one from many possible choices. I’m pretty convinced many will still choose Android – but it won’t really limit choices for everyone else.

  8. I think most of the point in the article have some validity, but they take only a few aspect of the competition. Android clearly have the edge, but it is far from over : MeeGo will have a run, since Nokia will push hard behind in the handset market. It won’t be the bigger player in that market soon though (android,iOS) .

    One important aspect is that the technogy project is different in the two cases :
    - Android was conceive specifically from smartphone. The Java SDK is a plus, since it is so widely used. But it comes with a price in term of performance. They made a terrific work on the Dalvik VM, but it remains a gap compared with compiled code ( it is why they released native client). This offset may become an annoyance in the long term, since speed and battery autonomy are important in smartphones.
    - I’m curious of how and android will behave on other market like : netbook, tablet, TV…
    - Android and Chrome OS doesn’t fit that well together (java apps versus web apps) and they may be opponent on netbooks. It may become a problem for Google at some point.
    - And last there is the compatibility question : android uses linux kernel, but the rest of the stack is quite different and incompatible with traditional linux (except for the bundeled component like webkit, opengl…)

    For MeeGo:
    - MeeGo is in a sense a traditional linux distribution : it respects freedesktop.org specification. It uses a lot of Gnome middleware component (gconf,cairo,pango…), and have a Qt interface (for handset) and Qt SDK. It means for instance every linux software run on MeeGo. In the other direction, it is great for traditional “desktop” linux, since Nokia & co contributes to numerous established projects.
    - MeeGo is much more ubiquitous/ multi-target : there is a core platform that imply the same middleware everywhere, and then everything related to the different interface is kept separate : they will be user interface specialized for : netbook, phones, tablet, in-vehicule entertainement … and more. This approach garanty the compability of the applications, but allow to customize, depending on the target.
    - Qt is C++. It makes the performance good (except if the code is crap ;-) ). It may allow Nokia to built phones with cheaper hardware for equivalent performance.
    - Qt already runs on : windows, mac, linux, solaris, symbian S60, symbian^3 and a few other platform. I will perhaps also run on android (Native dev kit + lighthouse) , iOS (lighthouse) and into a web browser (Native client + lighthouse).

    So I see a situation where Android will take the lead in smartphone. MeeGo will be smaller in this market as long as there is only nokia behind it (in phone market). But I think MeeGo will be important in tablet, netbooks and in-vehicule.
    So android have the bigger mindshare, but I believe MeeGo platform is intrinsically superior, because it share more of its platform with upstream project and use a Native SDK by default. Ultimately I don’t see any of those two die soon.

    Are they going to become the new enemy brother in a long genealogy : vi vs emacs, gnome vs kde, MeeGo vs Android ?

    • Well said!!

    • “Android was conceive specifically from smartphone.”
      - True, but now we know that a lot of companies, like Asus, Dell or Archos use Android in other devices like Net-Book, Tablet, even PC.

      “The Java SDK is a plus, since it is so widely used. But it comes with a price in term of performance. They made a terrific work on the Dalvik VM, but it remains a gap compared with compiled code ( it is why they released native client). This offset may become an annoyance in the long term, since speed and battery autonomy are important in smartphones.”

      - I did some benchmark to determine what are the battery power drain causes.
      1rst (60% of the power): The screen
      2nd (30% of the power): The wifi/GPs/GSM
      So applications consumption are unimportant in the the battery life.

      - Most of the smartphone battery life (except BlackBerry), hold less than a day.

      “They made a terrific work on the Dalvik VM, but it remains a gap compared with compiled code ( it is why they released native client). This offset may become an annoyance in the long term, since speed and battery autonomy are important in smartphones.”
      - You don’t seems to watch this famous video, quake 3 on android: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63YKYS-4mQo

      “So I see a situation where Android will take the lead in smartphone. MeeGo will be smaller in this market as long as there is only nokia behind it (in phone market). But I think MeeGo will be important in tablet, netbooks and in-vehicule.”

      I’am working both on the smartphone and on the embedded market, I’am assure you that big cars companies like BMW, Mercedes, Peugeot asked us to add android applications in there on board computer.

    • I understand that meego has more advantages than android, but developing android apps involve java which has more advantages than c++ , I believe.
      how can you say no to this?

  9. I’m a wanna be mobile developer and I have one fundamental rule that I will never touch anything based on Java, ever, so any and all positive pro-Android argument is irrelevant. I suspect I am not the only one with this point of view.

    • You wanna be a mobile-developer and yet you refuse to even “touch” java. Hmmmmm… [ Sorry, No other Comments ]

      • Well fortunately I do not have to ever touch Java and actually remove it from any server or desktop system I control. As long as I do not want to use the Android framework or marketplace then I don’t have to, as there are a few other options, and I am perfectly happy using QtCreator and the Nokia SDK. I’m obviously in the MeeGo corner.

      • From Android vs. MeeGo, Looks like this is boiling down to C++ vs. Java.

        Lets us NOT “re-invent” the wheel . . .

        Plz Checkout:
        Java vs C : The Performance Showdown

      • Not at all. It’s a foreign (to me) OS in a language I have no time for versus a traditional GPL linux stack that I love and have used for over 15 years. It is already the best system so any other approach, like Dalvik, is (to me) a waste of (my) time.

        As for MeeGo, if it wasn’t for Qt and the GPL Nokia SDK being a core and increasingly important part of its future, I wouldn’t be interested in MeeGo either. So put together a GPL Qt with a traditional GPL linux stack and some serious companies backing it and I’m in. For me, nothing else is worth bothering with, aside from my personal distaste for anything JAVA based regardless of it’s technical merits.

      • @markc more interested in the licensing aspect of the two, are you??…

      • Woops, I forgot to click on Reply. See #comment-210.

  10. Yes, but even more pragmatically it comes down to “traditonal linux stack” plus Qt then GPL, in that order, and then somewhere down the pipe comes “and as a bonus, no need for Java whatsoever.”

    • [1] If U dig a bit deeper into android,
      U will see that its built on top of the “traditional Linux stack”.

      [2] And to add to that,
      one gets the familiar development environment of JAVA. (the way U love Qt).

      [3] Add to that the performance boost and…

      …you have a WIN-WIN-(WIN)!!

    • [1] can I install gcc and compile any old libc based source tarball?
      [2] only applies to someone who already does Java with no incentive to come in from outside the Java world. Eclipse may be a great IDE but because I don’t have a JRE/JDK installed I can’t even start it up to try it. I also don’t have Mono installed so I can’t run dotNet stuff either.
      [3] only applies to an official Dalvik approved device, if at all, and does not apply to all the devices that Windows, OSX, Symbian and Linux run on.

      Even though the Qt half of MeeGo is nearly 2 years behind Android I’d still put money on that combination beating out Android in pure numbers of devices in 2 years from now. We’ll see. Android has probably soaked up 80% of all the Java developers that are ever going to get on board whereas Qt/MeeGo *and* Clutter/MeeGo have got (I would argue) far more potential developers yet to come on board.

      • That leads us back to my original points number 4 and 1…

      • Re: [4] F.C.F.S. – the real meat of the Qt/MeeGo alliance has not even been released yet and that is QtQuick and a gui designer in QtCreator using a HTML5 QtWebkit as a frontend. Aside from native code C++ goodness, QML provides an environment that every web developer on the planet can adopt in one weekend and it’ll run on any device that all the major OSs already support. Android may have an enthusiastic inner circle but there is a real tangible Java barrier to encouraging the overwhelming vast majority of C++ and web developers to also get involved. QtQuik/QtCreator lowers the barrier for almost anyone, on any current platform, to get involved and put that on top of a GPL (not just “open something”) codebase and the best open governance I’ve ever seen large corporation(s) adopt and I still confidently predict MeeGo will outstrip Android development in 2 to 5 years.

        MeeGo has got a lot of traction already and the main show, the smoking gun, has not even been released yet.

      • I always wondered wat the “dublyoo dublyoo dublyoo dot…” meant ?

        i guess it stands for the wild-wild-west. :-)

        Don’t forget to check me out in “2 to 5yrs

      • Ohh shittt, whatsapp @mconstable… you loose?? Meego is extinct. I’m so sorry, but you shouldn’t be never a investor, trust me.

  11. Android and iPhone are both first world devices. They come at first world prices, and require first world bandwidth, network providers and suppliers who don’t ruin the product such as Leaf in South-Africa. However the biggest gains to be made are in the third world, where people are far more likely to buy a phone than a computer. This is where brands like Nokia flourish.

  12. Wanna comment on Dalvik VM, Java and how Android rulez because it has superduper-dalvik. Amazing vm! Comes with stolen IP! Marvellous!

  13. Yep Very True …. Android is already an established platform …
    Nokia really needs a good OS for their smart phones … They are cashing on Meego …

  14. Meego = mobile linux = winner, case closed

  15. At this moment I can run MeeGo on my acer aspire one netbook and not crash. I like the interface as well.
    I started first trying to install Android 1.6 and 2.2 nothing but problems and a lousy interface for a netbook. So maybe MeeGo on netbooks and android on phones for now.

  16. I think the OP is wrong.

    GNU-Linux is more powerful than Android Linux, and it is more powerful with 2 decades worth of free software behind it while potentially being just as lite weight…..Linux, at least the lite weight versions like Peppermint OS or Puppy Linux, can run on devices that are less powerful than my Samsung Epic, and yet I can play Oblivion and fallout 3 with emulation or use a service with a real desktop browser and play real time video games that are not yet possible to play on Android….ok, maybe its theoretically possible, but the most expensive word processor for Android isnt as useful or powerful as the worst word processor for GNU-Linux….The FREE software that Meebo has access to blows the PAID software Android can provide out of the water.

    This article is contradicting itself….Newer is better or first come first serve? Its both? No it isnt. GNU-Linux has a 2 decade head start over Android AND its the hot new thing.

    Meebo will have a cult following from the GNU Linux crowd ON TOP OF the regular buzz the product would generate without this cult backing.

    A GNU-Linux operating system on a mobile phone device sound AMAZING.

    People HACK their phones to get Ubuntu/Mint on their phone….People would prefer a powerful desktop OS, and a lite weight GNU-Linux OS would be superior in performance to Android at this point.

    • @Nick ++ for mentioning Fallout3!! ;-)

      GEEKs hack their phones and noobs follow.

      GNU-Linux OS WOULD be superior in performance to Android…
      GNU-Linux OS SHOULD be superior in performance to Android…
      But WHY oh WHY is it NOT?

      1. Debugging
      2. Documentation
      3. Development tools
      4. High-level support
      5. Class library
      6. Development cycle efficiency
      7. Object-oriented development aids
      8. Programming management aids
      9. Online help
      10. Development cycle automation
      [ref: GPBB, Michael Abrash]

      Is something missing here? You bet it is!!!
      Performance is NOT EVEN the 10th member on the list.

      With Android, Google promised (and so far has delivered) upon the 10 commandments corporations base their marketing strategies upon.

      With *ALL* major corps (except the direct competitors) adopting to go the “Android-way”, the extensive-buzz and world-market penetration enjoyed by Android is second to none.

      There will always be geeks looking to squeeze every single processor cycle out of the device, but they are the exceptions and not the rules.

      To add to this, Android has cleverly sidestepped the issue and not alienated the geek population by being lax on the issue of preventing anyone from “unlocking” an Android device. Thus giving everyone what they want.

      Google’s Marketing majors “own” this victory,
      as much as the engineering geniuses behind Android.

      • Hiiim… this list has some good and right point like “Debugging”.
        But other points are general and not related to C++/Java.
        Performance could be a policy on a company. Google has its own policy and Nokia too.
        But i can say you that Java is more productive naturaly than C++.

  17. No doubt, Android is a better platform for commercial software developers due to the LACK of compatibility with 2 decades of GPL-Linux.

    However, we DONT NEED to pull in software developers to make Meego awesome because GNU-Linux already has a software suite that is superior to any mobile operating system on the market, and arguably better than any desktop or server operating system on the market, and this is before a single paid app or market is created for the new platform.

    Meego isnt going to be about the paid app store, but its going to be about a rush for more advanced hardware to keep up with the operating systems capability (Good for mobile phone developers themselves), and the majority of the money is probably going to be in SERVICES rather than paid applications……I mean, who would pay even 99 cents for a mobile word processor, which has been sadly lacking on Android and the best runner up is little more than notepad with spellcheck, when GNU-Linux has Open Office, or Abe Word, or several other lite weight ‘Writers’ that absolutely blow even the most advanced Android processor out of the water and over the next continent to be smashed against the rocks…..The free software already available for GNU-Linux obliterates not only the top of the line paid Andorid software, but also Iphone and Windows mobile software….by a LOT.

    There is no lack of software developers for GNU Linux…..The lack of software developers was actually Androids strength as far as making money because its hard to sell apps for money when they are inferior to what GNU-Linux gives away for free…..I mean, you can play modern games with cloud services if you only have a modern browswer, but that isnt to be found on ANY mobile operating system EXCEPT Meego which is based on desktop grade applications that can be as lite weight as Android…..In fact, Meego is already pretty darn fast. Its definitely not too heavy compared to Android, though there might be a rush for lighter apps rather than a lighter operating system.

    Google could potentially still make money even if Android looses to Meego……I would even say that google could make MORE money selling cloud services to Meego users than selling paid apps to their own customers….The app store isnt doing as well as they thought and there are more free apps than they expected…..Android could EVENTUALLY catch up, but for now they are 2 decades behind…..Sure, with corporate funding they could close the gap is much less time, but its a massive gap and we are getting to the point where the desktop apps for a decade ago were designed to run on computers less powerful than current generation phones, so we actually can bring desktop performance to a phone with Meego, though you cant with Windows 7 because it wont run on an arm processor. This will be a game changer for GNU-Linux desktops, not just GNU-Linux phones. Windows should be worried.

    Google doesnt need to be worried. Even if their Android is out competed, Google can rack in the cash selling cloud services to Meego customers.

    Somebody needs to team up with the Linux emulation companies and Steam and create a paid monthly platform that brings steam emulation or browser based modern gaming to the Meego platform and its all over.

    There will be more money in cloud services and apps than in the app store…..Linux free apps are already superior to Iphone and Android and Windows paid apps without a single non-interface developer writing new applications for it.

    There is a danger of some of the smaller repositories getting overloaded….That will be one obstacle. Perhaps paid repositories is where the money will be at, rather than paid applications….repos that are reliable and smooth, or cloud services that check for dependencies and make sure you dont bork your system.

  18. Hello, what now? Nokia abandoned MeeGo for the microsoft thing called OS… Should we consider Nokia and MeeGo dead or only one of them?

    • Neither is NOKIA dead, nor MeeGo. Its just that NOKIA is playing it safe now, and has moved on to greener pastures with WindowsPhone7.

      Make no mistake, but as on date, WP7 sucks.
      But MS is known for its OS-overhauling ServicePacks (read XP SP2)

      Having promised to add multitasking & fix the “broken” back button, amongst a plethora of changes, WP7 is all set to stage a post-interval-2nd-half comeback!!

      What remains to be seen is whether it makes any difference or is it just a tad too late with honeycomb already roaring to jump to a quick-start of the block.

        Android vs. MeeGo – II

      COMING SOON to a store near U ;-) ;-)

  19. I wonder if this law suit from oracle will dent an androids development. meego looks clear from these kind of issues

  20. It only takes one reason why Android can’t compete against MeeGo: Qt.

    • What next?… MeeGo without Qt!!

      New strategic direction [ blog.qt.nokia.com ]

      Future of Qt [ conversations.nokia.com ]

      Aron from Nokia says:

      Qt will not be ported to Windows Phone 7. One of the key benefits of joining an established ecosystem is that there is an established toolchain that everyone uses. All Windows Phone apps will run on all WP7 devices. Adding Qt to the mix would only cause fragmentation.

      • As if M$ would allow Qt anywhere near WP7. Qt is still front and center for MeeGo and will do just fine without Nokias involvement.

        One thing about this Nokia/WP7 episode is that now EVERYONE has heard of MeeGo. And guess what, Nokia dismissed Android as an option.

  21. Just installed Meego on an old Eee PC 901. I doubt Android would run as smooth on this harware. While Android will go towards unified tablet and phone OS, Meego is a lot more.

  22. Nothing truly can compare to the versatility that a full bash shell can offer. That counts as a killer app and enough it’s for me to go with MeeGo. Not to mention Emacs :).

  23. I’m not overly techie but I use open source software to protect my identity and privacy –

    In Linux Format magazine LFX143 April 2011 there is a letter from Phyllis, Hampshire, reporting the Android t&c which state that google will track and keep everything you do and link this to your machines identity.

    Will Meego be doing the same?

  24. I completely disagree with your article. I think android is and always has been a very buggy and unfinished OS in comparisson to Nokia’s symbian platform. The OS seems “unfinished” and is completed by third party developers which is awesome but otherwise Android is garbage. I’ve been using stock Android for a while and the OS always fails and does not deliver. Moreover, the customer service they provide is awful and the so called “community” is left to solve the horrible problems google fails to resolve. Too many developers launch unfinished products that we consumers even have to even pay for and that is just unnaceptable. If Nokia takes 10 years to come up with a new OS then It SHOULD in theory be a good OS and much better than Android which is full of bugs. My 1 cent.

    • Agreed that in its peak, the symbian platform, especially the S60 series was even more dominant than what Android is today. But, symbian had its limitations and thats precisely why android even exists. While Nokia (MeeGo), MS (WinMob7), Samsung (bada) are trying to come up with newer alternatives to capture the market, android is already in place, and doing just that!

  25. This article is crap. I was hoping to find something to help me choose between MeeGo and Android, but this article is unable to do that. It doesn’t even try.

  26. MeeGo need to change their name first to fight with Android, which one you all like to hear MeeGo or Android? MeeGo not a tech enough names, it sounds like junk food name.

  27. 可惜了;-)

  28. Do you know one thing Nokia n9 having the ability to run two mobile os that is Android 4 and Meego.then what are else do you want. Nokia rocks

  29. what shit.
    i don’t know c++ or java or linux
    i do not want to know the softwares behind these OS
    just tell which OS will be best to use or so called “smart”.

  30. how to convert android to meego?????????
