This is a thread that has appeared on talk.Maemo.org which outlines the possibilities of some Nokia N9s being seeded to the community. Good idea?

Let's say we could have a nice amount of N9s (*) for a maemo.org
centered device seeding activity. I could get them as part of two lines
of work where the maemo.org community might want to play a role:

- Encouraging developers bringing stable & interesting apps to the Nokia
Store. There is a source of inspiration at
http://www.developer.nokia.com/Community/Wiki/Apps_Missing
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=83333

- Encouraging developers to port & develop apps to Qt 5, getting
familiar and ready for the next big Qt iteration and providing feedback
to the developers at http://qt-project.org &
http://wiki.qt-project.org/Qt_5_on_Nokia_N9

If needed, a few devices could be invested in side activities related to
these tracks:

- Improvements in apps infra at maemo.org or the evolution of COBS /
apps.formeego.org / etc.

- Improvements in Qt 5 support in the N9.

What do you think?

Ideally Nokia would provide to the community an amount of devices and
the infrastructure to deliver them for free to the fortunate developers,
using the http://developer.nokia.com infrastructure. The criteria and
selection of recipients could be done by the community itself, and I
could help wherever needed.

If you like the idea we can proceed. A good goal would be to have the
recipients defined by the end of May, so we can have all the shipments
during the first days of June. The closest we get to July the easier
will be to get hit by Summer holidays delays.

(*) I can't 100% confirm a number today but let's say 100 N9s and
(surprise surprise) the last batch of sealed N950s I know about (just a
few units).
