MeeGo on a phone preview, looks nice, but the lag is worry-some

Today at the MeeGo homepage, there is a guided tour of the new OS running on a prototype handset. The OS right now is pretty bare-bones, but has some unique qualities. One thing I immediately liked is that when you minimize an application, you can see its window open right there on the screen. It is actually more reminiscent of a Windows style desktop with the square windows, but it also takes some cues from the WebOS cards. One troublesome thing I see right away is the small black mouse that is left after each button press. It looks like it might be a more desktop oriented OS than a phone OS by that notion, but it is still too early to tell. Performance also was very slow and applications took more than a few seconds to open. Maybe it is taking those cues from WebOS as well. As Palm knows first hand, launching a platform with a slow/laggy OS is nothing but trouble. Palm is still working to improve the speed of their OS and I am hoping that Nokia and Intel will do the same with MeeGo before officially launching it. Regardless of speed, the OS looks really nice and I look forward to its release. Hopefully Nokia can get on board with iOS, Android and WebOS and give its users and developers some platform parity. Check out the video to see the walk-through yourself.
