I think it is kinda late not because of the need to create community
(great community already exists). By the time the device becomes
availble to all you probably want to have most important existing apps
ported and tested. My impression is that this is not the case right
now. Some work can be done with scratchbox environment, but in my
experience it is not quite the same as running apps on the device

Program schedule you mention - is it published somewhere and I just
missed it or is it kept secret? (I apologize for being annoying, I'm
just eager to get my hands on n800, so I would like to know if I
should wait for the discount:)
