While Intel’s MeeGo for tablets has been shrouded in a mystery since Computex, it looks like things are chaning now as Intel has made an appearance at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona with that very same tablet user interface, but now it has been more polished since the last time it was seen, the best is that Intel has finally allowed the press to test if for themselves.
So when it comes to comparing the design of the UI or what Intel calls its “tablet user experience” to the one that was displayed back in June, there isn’t much of a noticeable difference in terms of aesthetics, which is because of the fact that Intel has been primarily working on the code and framework.
Intel has shifted away from C++ and moved it over to QML, which is part of the Qt language. The entire MeeGo for tablets as well as individual apps are all built on QML and will henceforth be built on QML as well.
Intel’s Mike Richmond that QML will enable a lot of neat UI elements, meaning that Intel’s done some important retooling on the technical and software side of things, however that does not entail that the user interface of MeeGo tablets is quite ready yet.
Stay tuned as we shall keep reporting on the happenings from the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
