The folks behind the new MeeGo operating system for smartphones have announced the minimum hardware requirements to run the upcoming MeeGo 1.2 operating system. Basically in order to play, a handset will need a 600MHz or faster ARM v7 or x86 processor, 512MB or more of RAM, and 512MB or more of storage space.
Most higher end smartphones released in the last year or two already meet those specifications, so it doesn’t look like MeeGo is shooting for the stars here. But by making it clear that MeeGo 1.2 won’t support less powerful devices, the developers can focus on developing a user experience that should work well on all supported devices.
MeeGo 1.2 is due out in April.
