Nokia N900 owners might have a some good news soon. Right now, the phone is powered by Maemo, but an upcoming PR 1.3 update will allow the phone to dual boot between Maemo and MeeGo, offering you a different experience on the same phone.

There is also the possibility of developing applications supporting both operating systems, based on Qt and Qt Mobility APIs on the Maemo side. The N900 might not be the hottest thing around with the launch of the N8, iPhone 4 and other competitors, but this update would definitely breathe some new life into this phone.

The new platform will be a combination of the best features from the two companies existing platforms and will not target just smartphones but also tablet PC’s, netbooks and even connected television devices.

This announcement comes shortly after Nokia announced that the Symbian platform was going open source and hot on the heals of Google and their newly popular Android mobile software platform, in a clear chase to regain some of their market share. Nokia says the plans for the Symbian platform have not changed but will be used on less expensive smartphones, with the more expensive devices running MeeGo.
