Android is a software stack for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications The MeeGo software platform is designed to give developers the broadest range of device segments to target for their applications, including netbooks, handheld computing and communications devices, in-vehicle infotainment devices, smart TVs, tablets and more deepak09

Android is an operating system for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. It is developed by the Open Handset Alliance led by Google. Android consists of a kernel based on the Linux kernel, with middleware, libraries and APIs written in C and application software running on an application framework which includes Java-compatible libraries based on Apache Harmony. Android uses the Dalvik virtual machine with just-in-time compilation to run compiled Java code.[17] Android has a large community of developers writing applications ("apps") that extend the functionality of the devices. Developers write primarily in a customized version of Java.[18] There are currently more than 250,000 apps available for Android.[19][20] Apps can be downloaded from third-party sites or through online stores such as Android Market, the app store run by Google. Android was listed as the best-selling smartphone platform worldwide in Q4 2010 by Canalys. MEEGO MeeGo is a Linux-based open source mobile operating system project.[2] Primarily targeted at mobile devices and information appliances in the consumer electronics market, MeeGo is designed to act as an operating system for hardware platforms such as netbooks, entry-level desktops, nettops, tablet computers, mobile computing and communications devices, in-vehicle infotainment devices, SmartTV / ConnectedTV, IPTV-boxes, smart phones, and other embedded systems.[3] MeeGo is today hosted by the Linux FounMeeGo Architecture – MeeGo provides a full open source software stack from core operating system up to user interface libraries and tools. Further it offers user experience reference implementations and allows proprietary add-ons to be added by vendors to support hardware, services, or customized user experiences. MeeGo is carried out by Intel and Nokia as a joint venture.

Difference Between MeeGo and Android (1) MeeGo and Android both are open sourced Linux based smart phone operating system. (2) Android project is currently carried out by Google and MeeGo is carried out by Intel and Nokia as a joint venture. (3) Android already have a huge application market having more than 200,000 applications whereas in MeeGo is currently under development. But some of the Nokia OVI apps and Intel AppUp will run on MeeGo. (4) Android already captured considerable mobile market and MeeGo is still under development and not released for commercial use. ::::::::::::::: Android vs MeeGo Android and MeeGo both are open source Linux based operating systems for Smartphones, Tablets and Pads. Android was an initiative of Android and taken over by Google and MeeGo is an initiative by Intel and Nokia. MeeGo has not been released to commercial market yet.::::::::::::::::::::: MeeGo MeeGo is a Linux based operating system that could run on mobile handsets, netbooks, tablets , connected TVs and in-vehicle infotainment system. Moblin was an open source project carried out by world largest chip manufacturer Intel and Maemo was also an open source project carried out by Nokia. In 2010 February Intel and Nokia merged their open source project together and formed MeeGo Project. Primary reason for merging Intel’s Moblin and Nokia Maemo is to unify the efforts of both projects and communities and enable a next generation open source platform for smartphones, tablets and other capable devices. MeeGo Architecture – MeeGo provides a full open source software stack from core operating system up to user interface libraries and tools. Further it offers user experience reference implementations and allows proprietary add-ons to be added by vendors to support hardware, services, or customized user experiences.:::::::::::::::::::: Android Android is an open source operating system for smart phones and tablets initially developed by Android and the Internet giant Google took over in 2005. Android is developed on Linux kernel. Android has several versions and the latest version as today is Android 3.0 (Honeycomb). Android is fairly matured and introduced to commercial market long time back. Most Manufactures like Samsung, LG, Motorola, HTC and Huawei have already released handset for Android in 3G and 3G market. Android has a application market with more than 200,000 applications to run on Android devices.

MeeGo : As an open source software platform, MeeGo will help to reduce market fragmentation and complexity, while helping to accelerate industry innovation and time-to-market for a wealth of new Internet-based applications, services and user experiences. Android : Created market fragmentation. Frequent code releases force to upgrade the devices frequently Difference between two releases is enormous. Software maintenance is complex in developer’s point of view

License : MeeGo :Fully open source Android : Consists of Apache, BSD, Open source License: Android is going to be established as a “middle ground” in the openness spectrum: more open than proprietary competitors (iPhone, Windows Phone, Blackberry, WebOS, etc.) and possibly less open than others (MeeGo, Symbian)

MeeGo : It’s easy as it supports libc. Android : Android use very scaled down version of libc i.e. Bionic also the pthread library support is very limited.
Posted: 08-09-2011 @ 17:22:21
MeeGo :As its maintained by Linux foundation and supports upstream components, the maintenance is easy for the components. Android :Maintaining the additional drivers and enhancement like binder driver, low memory killer, Logger, kernel Debugger, Ashmem, Alarm, Power management is uncertain. Kernel is patched for enhancement to support Android.

Android : Java/J2Me(Java based uses Dalvik Machine as JVM and also Suports native coding via NDK) MeeGo : C++(QT Based)

Meego is another platform that follows the path of Android. It is also open source and based on Linux. The main difference between Android and Meego is maturity; Android is considered to be a mature software that has been tried and tested while Meego is fairly new and has not gone through as much scrutiny and testing as Android has. Android was created by Google and is still currently backed by the software giant. Android enjoys seamless integration with all of Google’s services. On the other hand, Meego is being backed by the concerted efforts of Nokia and Intel. Quite recently, Nokia has announced that its smartphones would be featuring Windows Phone 7; effectively putting Meego on ice and its future in question. As a consequence of the first difference between the two, you can get Android on a lot more devices than you can Meego. Android is used by many phone manufacturers like HTC, Motorola, Samsung, Sony-Ericsson, and many more. So far, Meego is only used in one phone (the Nokia N900) and a handful of netbooks. So if you are shopping for a new phone, then Android is your only option. Another area of interest for most consumers is the number of applications that they can install on their device. Android has hundreds of thousands of applications in the Android market. Supported by thousands of enthusiastic developers, the actual number of apps is constantly increasing on a daily basis. In comparison, Meego doesn’t have many. Although some argue that there are a lot of Linux apps that can be easily ported to Meego, there are no guarantees that all apps would work. Those apps are also not optimized for the smaller screen sizes that the Meego would be operating on...

It was announced a few days earlier that intel would stop working on meego os temporarily. Meego os was purported to be for nokia n9 with nokia and intel working on the os together. But when android started getting popular as the next smartphone nokia switched plans and decided to partner with microsoft to launch wm7. As such meego os is something which has not seen much development or support in the mobile platform with the parent companies itself showing disinterest. Android is the os developed by google and is open source. Since its open source developers can mould it to their own interest and demands. Almost all manufacturers are adopting android like samsung, micromax, reliance tablets, mts etc. Many versions like gingerbread, honeycomb and the latest being ice cream sandwich. Compared to the meego os which has little or no apps in the mobile platform android has over 2 lakh 65 thousand apps and many of them are free. Android is flexible and processing is super cool with heavy processors. As such it finds wide use in tablets and mobiles.
