A new class of devices is emerging that enables full Internet access while on the go. These internet-centric devices known as Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), netbooks, nettops combine the software compatibility of the PC with an easy to use, consumer friendly user interface. In 2007, Intel launched Moblin.org, a community focused on enabling the new technologies required to deliver this new category of Linux-based devices.

This session will provide an overview of the technologies and projects that are part of Moblin.org, including tools such as Moblin Image Creator, and provide information on how you can start porting or developing new applications for Moblin. Come hear how you can be part of this growing community of developers unleashing the power of the Internet on wireless, handheld platforms.
