I agree entirely.
Why limit it to device support though?
we have a platform that can be custom coded to specification and
collect/process and transmit data immediately - from the palm of your hand.
you can take these devices places where laptops are intrusive and you can
obtain the data required for a business better than any other off the shelf
piece of hardware.

i can potentially see thousands of SME businesses benefiting from this kind
of platform, it just needs a full business team from the maemo end :)
