A bit of speculation on Maemo

Been thinking about Maemo lately. Despite these harsh economic times Nokia still keeps hiring software developers to work on the platform. This leads me to wonder just how big the market for internet tablets really is, if they ever want this to be profitable.

No, they are probably working on a phone. Just imagine it, a phone running a platform that leverages core open-source technologies (both GNOME, freedesktop and soon QT), rather than reinventing it all (like Android does).

This would be the most awesome hacker phone around. So Nokia, where and when can I start sending you money? I’d pay lots of it and I’m quite sure I’m not alone.
