Intel MWC to involve MeeGo phone and tablet

A behind the scenes sighting on Sunday of last-minute Mobile World Congress prep at the Fira de Barcelona confirmed that Intel plans to show a Atom-based MeeGo smartphone at the event on Monday. The unnamed device was seen in a building-sized promo image side-by-side with an unnamed tablet running a larger version of MeeGo. Neither was given a name by Meet MeeGo, but the phone may be Aava Core hinted at earlier.

The device was already confirmed by Intel to be using Medfield, the new version of its Atom processor platform. Medfield should be smaller and cooler-running than the current Oak Trail platform and may be the first to run in a smartphone that matches most users' expectations for size and battery life.

Little is known about the tablet, but Intel often picks a hardware manufacturer that isn't necessarily well-known to help promote a processor, an OS or both. It has used the German-made WeTab as an example of MeeGo and the recently shipping, Canadian ExoPC as an example of a Windows slate running on an Atom.
