Intel: MeeGo-ing Forward Even Without Nokia

Nokia’s commitment to MeeGo may be tenuous after today’s big announcement, but Intel’s is unwavering. The chip giant says it’s sticking with the Linux-based mobile platform regardless of where its partner’s head is at these days.

In a statement released today, Intel said that while it’s disappointed by Nokia’s decision to refocus its mobile efforts around Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform, it’s “not blinking” on MeeGo.

“We remain committed and welcome Nokia’s continued contribution to MeeGo open source,” the company said. “Our strategy has always been to provide choice when it comes to operating systems, a strategy that includes Windows, Android, and MeeGo. This is not changing.”

Perhaps. Intel claims its silicon will be in a phone that ships this year. But it didn’t say what OS it will run or who’s manufacturing it. After today’s news I can’t imagine it’s Nokia.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
