I apologize for the cross post, but I think there are several folks on this list interested in this topic. Over the next few weeks we will be pulling some of these tablet apps into the IVI build images.

Subject: [MeeGo-dev] tablet user experience source is now open...
Today, we've made available the source code for the tablet user experience project.
The tablet user experience project (http://meego.com/downloads/releases/1.2/meego-tablet-developer-preview), developed mostly in QML, is still under active development and considered pre-alpha code. It introduces a panels-based home screen as the core user experience navigation model, providing users with fast access to applications, settings, recent and favorite content. The tablet user experience includes a traditional application icon-grid view for application management. It also includes several built-in applications as part of the user experience: a touch optimized browser, based on Chromium; a Camera, Photo Viewer, Video Player and Music Player to capture, view, play and share media files; Calendar, Contacts, Email, Tasks and Notes applications to manage your personal information; a Chat application that supports instant messaging on Jabber and Google Talk networks; and a Clock application, which includes alarms, timers and multiple time zone displays. The tablet user
experience also includes APIs for sharing content to social networks and other Web targets, adding third-party content into the panels, and centralizing Settings for built-in and installed apps.
The tablet user experience runs on MeeGo 1.2 or later and currently has hardware adaptation support for the ExoPC, an Intel Atom based Pinetrail Platform.
