Yes, good point. Still some legal considerations remains on where we can
link from official nokia site. Workaround solution is to link first
maemo.org but it's not optimal.

Yes and no. We had a long internal talk of should internettablet talk be
part of nokia asset (as talk.maemo.nokia.com) or part of maemo.org. We
opted for the latter since we believe that the discussion should not
modified by Nokia in any way to keep it true to the community spirit.
Anyhow, I still see that the design of the site could be a mixture of
elements from maemo.nokia.com and from maemo.org. Feel free to say if
you think this is a bad idea :) At least, the maemo.nokia.com should be
a bit effectivily put out compared to current maemo
