And they claim to have 20+ applications ready to go, many (according
to the gallery) apparently Hildonized.

If those applications are free software, it may be trivial to port
them over to the 770 / N800 ...

I may be being over-dramatic, but this feels to me like crunch time
for Nokia.  They will either decide now to accept the potential of
their platform and go fully free -- or they will batten down the
hatches in any way they can, in an attempt to prevent other players
from leveraging their work.
