This year's 15 most anticipated mobile technologies

From smartphones to mobile operating systems


We've rounded up the 15 most highly anticipated mobile technologies set to appear later this year.

Nokia + Intel = MeeGo OS

Nokia and Intel have joined forces to develop yet another mobile platform: MeeGo. A hybrid of two operating systems, Nokia's Maemo and Intel's Moblin, the OS will be open-source and based on Linux.

MeeGo is intended for advanced smartphones, tablets, netbooks, in-vehicle technology, and even connected televisions. It supports ARM architectures as well as Intel's Atom processor.

The first devices should launch in the second half of 2010.

Motorola Quench

Motorola revealed its eighth Android phone, the Motorola Quench.

Like the original Cliq (known as the Dext in the UK), Motorola's first Android device, it runs Motorola's MotoBlur user interface over Android 1.5.

The Quench has a 3.1in touchscreen, which is a bit small compared with other smartphones on the market; Flash Lite support; and pinch-and-zoom capabilities in the browser.

It also sports a 5Mp camera and comes preloaded with all of the Google services you'd expect on an Android phone.
