Linpus Lite- MeeGo Touch Edition

Tweet: @bobduffy: Screenshots of Linpus Lite MeeGo-Touch Edition http://bit.ly/etu4WL with MeeGo compliant apps "will be able to include Intel AppUp center."

Context:  Linpus is an open source Linux Solutions Provide and OS software company.  They have developed a version of Linpus running on the MeeGo OS called Linpus Lite and have recently created a tablet version called MeeGo Touch Edition.  Per their site:  

Multi-touch edition is one of the first full Meego-based multi-touch solutions. It is not just an operating system, but also includes a  comprehensive suite of key applications including: an ereader, browser, media player, photo viewer, virtual keyboard and webcam.

There are two interfaces: an icon-based launcher and also a widget desktop; these desktops can be easily swapped between with up and down swipes. 

The included applications are also all customized for multi-touch and ease of use guaranteeing a full browsing, movie watching and music experience. 

The solution is MeeGo 1.1 compliant; it has the user interface and applications all written in QT, and includes the full MeeGo Touch Framework (MTF) with gesture support. By being MeeGo compliant they will be able to include Intel AppUp center.
