Two more Handset manufacturers are to join MeeGo working on the Handset form factor. Panasonic and Huawei are to be nominated to join the MeeGo Handset Working Group at a scheduled TSG (Technical Steering Group) Meeting. If approved (and I can't see any reason for them not getting approved) they will join China Mobile, Intel, LGE, Nokia and ZTE (who were announced last week). Many (including me) see Huawei coming onboard as a major boost to the MeeGo Handset Operating System and makes the bitter pill of Nokia taking a back step from MeeGo an easier Pill to swallow.
This news will be officially announced in a few weeks.
