Video review of a development device for Intel OS MeeGo - Aava Mobile

    The video below provides a fairly extensive overview of the Aava Mobile hardware along with software stuffing in the form of MeeGo OS 1.1. The device considers itself the First Free Device in the World (as stated on their website). The company was founded in 2009 with the goal of developing an open-source device for the OEM / ODM market. I must say right away that the device is not particularly accessible to mere mortals (as I understood from the video, you can buy it, citing the fact that you are a developer, but it will cost a lot). For those who already have an idea about the device, I suggest immediately watching the video, just interested, please first look at the cat.

    Well, since you continued reading this post, you probably want to take a look at the specifications:
    ProcessorIntel® Atom ™ (code name Moorestown)
    Display854x480 3.8 "TFT
    Touch screenCapacitive extended
    NetworkGSM / EDGE quad band
    WCDMA triple-band (Band I, II and V)
    2 Mbps up-link and 7.2 Mbps down-link
    WiFi / BTYes
    SensorsAmbient light sensor, Proximity sensor, 3D compass, Accelerometer
    Haptic feedbackYes
    Videoconferencing camera2MP resolution
    Still image camera5 megapixel (optional 8 megapixel) and LED flash
    Fm radioYes
    MicStereo (echo and background noise cancellation)
    Side keysHard keys: Power on / off, function, volume up / down, 2-step camera button.

    Now, let's turn to the key points from the video. As I already said, the device is not intended for end users, but for developers for MeeGo - in particular, the main debugging of the system occurs on it (and not on the Nokia N900, as some comrade-owners of this phone would like). Aava mobile is built on the Intel Moorestown platform - the new Atom line for mobile devices. The processor here operates at a frequency of 1.5 GHz.

    We now turn to the software part - the MeeGo OS 1.1 (though, rather At the moment, a lot of it is not implemented, in place of most applications there are stubs. The system is something derived from the merger of Maemo and Moblin.

    From the “working” one - contacts, photos (there is no multitouch yet, for some reason the zoom also didn’t work, but they scroll relatively quickly), the browser is Mozilla Fennec 1.1b with flash support.

    Switching between applications is rather unusual - a mix of task manager from maya and the effect of compis with the “application ring”. I don’t know how comfortable it will be, so far it looks just beautiful. The implementation of switching in Maya I like more.

    A few more words about the browser - according to the tester, it sets a record among mobile devices in the SunSpider benchmark at 4215ms (still, with a 1.5-GHz processor).

    In conclusion, I want to remind N900 users that they should not put MeeGo on their phones, because there is nothing to catch. OS release promised in October 2010.
