So, maybe MeeGo isn't dead afterall

So, maybe MeeGo isn't dead afterall
Despite founding partner Nokia leaving the mobile operating system for dead, it appears not everyone is willing to let the Linux-based MeeGo head off to Davy Jones' locker.

LG Electronics is looking to adopt the OS for some lower-end smartphones, with discussions already underway.

Says MeeGo, of Nokia's decision to abandon the project in favor of Windows Phone 7:

It's opening opportunities for the others to come in. Discussions are taking place. You'll see things coming out this year, pretty soon.

Besides LG, ZTE and China Mobile are also looking to help develop a handset with the OS.

Even if MeeGo is revived (outside of tablets), it will have stiff competition from Android, Windows Phone 7 and BlackBerry, and the possibility of Apple creating new models of the iPhone which will be aimed at the lower end of the market.
