This news item may be of interest to list members, especially to those
looking to get SWORD front-ends onto mobiles......

Intel and Orange have agreed to deliver Orange multimedia services to
devices based on the Intel Atom processor and the MeeGo software platform.

The move marks another step forward in the use of Linux in handsets and
mobile devices.

MeeGo is a Linux-based mobile operating system that is being developed by
merging Intel's Moblin and Nokia's Maemo. It builds on the capabilities of
Moblin and its support for a wide range of device types, and Maemo's Qt
application and user interface framework for software developers. The idea
is to create a common software environment that will make it easier to
develop applications and services for a range of hardware, from smartphones
and tablets to netbooks.

Intel and Orange will work on making key Orange services, such as Orange TV
and Orange Maps, on MeeGo based hardware.
