Surely you either need one _now_ for business reasons (in which case  
you can buy one), or you just want one, in which case whining about  
how Nokia won't tell you right now whether or when they're going to  
give you one on the cheap is likely to be counterproductive at best.   
Christmas was last month.

Nokia do need to start taking 'open' seriously if they want this  
platform to be a true success - just look how many questions on this  
list are about the closed aspects of the code and how many people  
there are itching to work on those issues.  We need to persuade them  
to open the source, not complain about how they don't give out enough  
free hardware.
