interesting, I wonder if this means we'll see an official port of qtopia to the nokia tablets?

There is already device configuration for n800 in the Qtopia sources. Although, it is far from finished and has lots of missing things.

Will there also be something "new" for the N770? Unfortunately the latest Maemo developments don't run on it and so mine is pretty useless.

the n770 with os2006 is still far from useless, or run OS2007HE and a lot of stuff runs, and OS2008HE is being worked on.

Hey, Mr L.P., glad you're still around. I hope this buyout makes you rich, enough to buy a few more zauruses, but not so rich you can retire and forget about us

good news for you, not being bought my Motorola - friend of mine now works for them, or at least for the moment, M bought his employer and gradually destroyed it. I hope Nokia know how to care for their new adopted child somewhat better!
