The platform is open, and that is the intention of Maemo.  Note the word
platform.  Some of the applications on the 770 are not open for various
reasons (you'll have to ask Opera for the source to the browser,
Macromedia for Flash player, etc) as they are the added-value of using a
Maemo-based device from Nokia, opposed to some other company (although
there are non yet).
