Android Market appears on first commercial MeeGo device – WeTab – AndroidPit

Today 4tiitoo let me know that Android Market is now available on their WeTab slate provided by AndroidPit. The WeTab has MeeGo 1.1 at its core and a Qt based User Interface developed by the company themselves. This is the fist company to take the MeeGo Open Source Operating System and truly “Run” with it. The version of Android is 2.1-update1 with Kernel 2.6.29-android-x86 (as reported through the about screen).

Below is the installation process to get it going:

Here is the Aldiko eBook reader application running.

So far the app seems a bit clunky and I’m not sure why. I will investigate this a bit more and will have a review and video up in due course.

Update: The App is in a Beta at present, sort of explains the clunky-ness.
