Warning: This is not MeeGo

But aside from that, Wikipedia seems to be in agreement:
> Even though MeeGo was initiated as collaboration between Nokia and Intel, the collaboration was formed when Nokia was already developing the next incarnation of its Maemo Linux distribution. As a result, the Maemo 6 base operating system will be kept intact while the Handset UX will be shared, with the name changed to MeeGo/Harmattan
Translation: We're still using Maemo under the hood with a bolted on MeeGo API and UX.
Personally I'm curious how easy it would be to get MeeGo on the device, if the Handset UX truly can be used for both.

It is MeeGo compatible (that is, has a MeeGo API) but is not to be confused with MeeGo 1.0 Handheld as it is NOT based on MeeGo Core.
