MeeGo Ported to Nexus One, Dell Streak, and HTC Desire
By on September 27th, 2010

MeeGo is Nokia’s best hope for resurgence. That’s something most of us will probably agree on. At this point, anything short of a complete makeover won’t allow Symbian to compete with the iPhones and Droids and Galaxies. Unfortunately, this is something Nokia doesn’t seem to fully appreciate.

Nokia N900 was a decent effort, and quite frankly, a step in the right direction. MeeGo was supposed to merge the best aspects of Maemo with Moblin to create a versatile operating system capable of handling mobile phones, tablets and even set-top boxes with ease. However, even after more six months, Nokia is yet to announce anything concrete based on MeeGo.

Nevertheless, if you are dying to get a taste of MeeGo, you can do so – even on your non-Nokia devices! MeeGo wiki has ported the open source operating system to Nexus One, Dell Streak, and HTC Desire, besides the N900. Download links and instructions are available here and here. Quite obviously, try it at your own risk. There is a reason why Nokia is taking its time to deploy MeeGo – it’s not yet ready!
