Published by Rafe Blandford, Reggie Suplido at 12:29 UTC, June 30th 2010

All About Maemo is changing its name to All About MeeGo to reflect the creation of MeeGo, following the merger of Nokia's Maemo and Intel's Moblin. Our aim is to continue to inform, educate and entertain, through the provision of independent, comprehensive and high quality coverage of the MeeGo platform and ecosystem.

We aim to cover all of these areas as MeeGo platform development continues and the first MeeGo devices emerge later this year. We'll continue to provide Maemo coverage, with a focus on the Nokia N900. The site will continue to evolve as we add extra features and strengthen our content provision.
