No, and when Maemo X comes along, they'll be abandoning N900 owners
just like they _already_ have N770 and N8x0 owners. Once they leave
the factory, any further software development for the tablets is left
up to "the community"...

And "The community" is already abandoning Maemo in faver of Mer... The
problem with FOSS (and especially "open" hardware) developers is that
they can never make up their minds and stick with one thing long
enough to actually finish it. The next great thing comes along and
everybody jumps on that bandwagon.
