No. You've four choices:

  1) Keep Diablo.
  2) Use and support Mer: http://wiki.maemo.org/Mer (which can be
     considered a backport of parts of Fremantle)
  3) Buy an RX-51 or subsequent Maemo device.
  4) Buy a different device.

If, by "minor features", you're including the OMAP3430 processor
(which is on the order of twice as fast) and 3D acceleration hardware.
This is why Nokia didn't attempt at any support of Fremantle on N8x0,
instead they're supporting the work the community is doing on Mer.



PS. Dropped -community, as this is all off-topic there.
