Here is a cool UI for MeeGo tablets called Velvet from the folks at TAT and Wind river . Watch the video below. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrdrBefMAEc Does a re-scaled UI for mobiles or PCs make a good tablet UI? We think tablets are radically different types of devices that require new and unique UIs. Velvet is a playful cloth shader concept UI for MeeGo tablets by TAT and Wind River. With full support for 3D graphics and shaders, TAT Cascades enables astonishing UIs on MeeGo, Android and other tablet OSs. It's hard to tell if we will see such UIs on devices soon but for now it's something cool for a concept ! via TAT Blog

Leaked Nokia MeeGo OS Demo

We just spotted a video demo of what looks like MeeGo OS running inside a Nokia Phone Emulator. The screens don't look like the UI where MeeGo screenshots pointed us about a month ago. But we heard that Nokia is going to have it's own UI on top of the native MeeGo UI and this might be atleast a portion of that. But the UI looks pretty impressive !httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XDp1MGlfGQ8&feature=youtu.be Thx to chilko for spotting this vid who also feels that video might be about Symbian^4 rather than MeeGo. But we saw the extras icon in the video so its MeeGo we say ! But it might be confidential information and we shall find out soon when the video is yanked !

Nokia N9 MeeGo UI might look different

The Nokia N9 which is rumored to be the first MeeGo phone from Nokia was shown off in a video which seems to have been pulled out of Youtube last month.  The MeeGo project today released some screenshots of MeeGo for handsets and the UI looks a bit different than Maemo and much more different than Symbian. The UI draws inspiration from Android and WebOS. Now Eldar of Mobile-Review tweeted that the Nokia N9 will have a different UI and not the default MeeGo UI.Would be interesting to watch how Nokia customizes the UI and there is word that Nokia is integrating OVI services into the Meego Phones.
