Taipei, Taiwan, October 25th - Linpus, a leader in the field of open source operating system solutions for smart devices, announced today their support for MeeGo on the Connected TV platform.

MeeGo delivers a complete, open standards-based Linux stack, optimized for living room devices, such as Blu-ray players, set top boxes, and digital TVs. Because MeeGo is designed as a cross platform operating system it is will allow users to enjoy access to multiple applications, services, and their personal media smoothly while either watching TV and then smoothly transfer to a smartphone, netbook or tablet.
