Comparing the Apple&iPhone buzz with Nokia&N800 buzz isn't accurate. The
right comparison is Nokia&N95. These terrains fall far out of the maemo
scope, really. 

maemo has still many challenges to accomplish its core mission: open
source development for Internet Tablets. What you are demanding are
tools and spaces for creating this end-user buzz and make it grow.
Having an open platform is helpful, but maemo is probably not the place.
Nobody expects iPhone end users getting excited at developer.apple.com

We need to keep the scope in developers, and additionally power users
because they are an essential piece in any open source environment. Of
course maemo can and should contribute to this buzz, and any ideas
around this are welcome. From this to Skype-related buzz there is a too
long jump, though.

I believe what you are asking for needs to flourish and evolve around
Tableteer, Nseries.com or a dedicated site for that. Let's see if we can
meet your expectations in this context.
