KDE MeeGo community member Vgrade. who is involved with the Mer Core project, describes his experiences with adapting Plasma Active for ARM architecture and running in on top of Mer. Even though Plasma Active One is targeted for tablets, it runs as a usable UX on a Nokia N950 handset. Mer itself is an open, inclusive, meritocratically governed and openly developed Linux core, providing a mobile-optimised base distribution for use by device manufacturers. The Plasma Active team plans to focus on a handset UI in Plasma Active Three, which is scheduled for summer 2012.

Thanks, it's good then to clarify that a bit on the announcement page ( http://kde.org/announcements/plasma-active-one ) to make it more clear that it's not yet fully decided:

Plasma Active Three will be another significant release where we will be focusing on security challenges and devices to keep your data safe and under your control. With release Three, we will begin implementing additional device form factors such as settop boxes or handhelds.
