First of all I must thank Intel for the oportunity of going to their AppLab.
In this lab we got introduced to MeeGo and to AppUp, they showed us how to program a couple of simple apps with their SDK 1.2 and we got an ExoPC with MeeGo to develop on the device.
This post is dedicated to the ExoPC with MeeGo and to the first impressions it gives to me.

Lets start with the hardware of ExoPC Slate, the fabricant fabricant web says this tablet has:

-Multitouch capacitative screen of 11,6 inches (1366×768).
-2GB RAM.
-Intel Atom Pineview-M N450 1.66 GHz – 64 bit support
-Intel GMA 3150 BROADCOM Crystal HD 1080p
-Webcam 1.3MP
Weights 950g and is 295 x 195 x 14.0 mm.

The tablet (has only one button).


It has a Windows 7 Home Premium licence sticker if you look close enough!

It has HDMI, 2x USB, Audio Jack, SD reader, and a dock that you cant see because its under the device (the little port there I don’t know what it is, maybe for SIMs).

Booting it!

First boot: failure, it was there stopped for a lot of minutes

Desktop just booted (before I got a screensaver-like screen)

The device in “phone” mode (when you hit in “all the apps”, this is what you get)

Chromium as navigator works well

Calculator app… ITS BIG AS HELL

A terminal… the keyboard-on-screen does not appear… solution: use a usb keyboard

Oh! We found a ?bug? if you touch 2 times the upper bar and you move it to the bottom you get a menu that seems to be some kind of debugging thing.

About the behaviour… its pretty bad. It gets stuck, sometimes its hard to change orientation, its hard to connect to a wifi for the first time… it shutdown once without me doing anything. The apps are pretty poor. The multitouch does not work.
But we are here to improve all of that!

By the way, the password of root is: meego
