Linpus to showcase its Linpus Lite for MeeGo™ netbook edition at IDF in San Francisco

Linpus adds improved categorization in Myzone and dual interfaces to its Linpus Lite for MeeGo™

San Francisco, IDF, September 13 - 15th - Linpus, a leader in the field of open source operating system solutions in the consumer space, announced today further enhancements to its Meego-based version of its Linpus Lite, which is optimized for the Intel® Atom™ processor. Linpus Lite is their highly successful consumer device operating system specially designed to deliver a better mobile Internet  experience.

Linpus originally brought one of the first MeeGo-based operating systems to market in time for Computex. They have since upgraded it with a number of improvements. Firstly, they have included better categorization of the social networking and recent object panel in Myzone. Originally, the Facebook and other social networking alerts all ran through the same panel, Linpus has created a tab for each of the different sites and for recent objects, making it easier to find your messages.

“Giving a different tab for each social network was something extremely popular with our clients on our Moblin edition,” said Rita Jing, vice-president of sales, Linpus. “Even though the layout of MeeGo is a little different, it was still beneficial to extend this feature to our MeeGo edition.”

Secondly, they have also added touch support and dual user interfaces. With Linpus' version you have the choice of two interfaces: MeeGo and Linpus' Simple Mode. You can switch easily between these  two modes by one tap on an icon in Myzone or in Simple Mode.

Linpus' version has also added a number of other enhancements:
* Extremely fast boot – Less than 10 seconds.
* More social network support in Myzone – Flickr and MySpace.
* Online support – Linpus commercial grade LiveUpdate function to deliver device-specific patches, upgrades and new applications to your system.
* Media Player – Added support for audio and video streaming.
* Power management – Advanced settings and options for idle mode and auto-suspend – as well as fine-tuning mean power savings of around 15 to 20%.
* Network Manager – More 3G modems and device-to-device file transfer (adhoc), VPN, PPPoE and WPA2-enterprise support.
* Linpus Windows Data Applications – If you have dual-boot with Windows, these applications help you view Outlook data, music and videos.
* Peripheral support – Extensive support especially for graphics, including the Intel full series graphics and  most of NVIDIA and ATI.
* Input method - More user friendly multi-Language input method and international keyboard support through iBus.
* File Manager – A Windows-like experience means that the partitions of USB drives are now alphabetically labeled, and easy to find.

Linpus will be showing Linpus Lite for MeeGo at Booth 114 in the MeeGo Community at IDF, along with several of their other products. Namely, Linpus Lite their own distro, and Linpus QuickOS, their fast-boot solution with a sub-3 second start up.
