*** PLEASE STOP REQUESTING DEVICES IN THE COMMENTS ***

*** READ THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW ***

Keeping the good tradition, we want to offer the new Nokia N810 Internet Tablet to the most active contributors of the maemo community, as soon as possible and as affordably as possible. The N810 maemo device program starts *now* with 500 discount codes entitling their fortunate owners to get a device for 99€ (or equivalent price in other currencies).

The call is addressed not only to open source programmers, but also to designers, documentation writers, community supporters, maemo evangelists, bloggers… In order to apply go to your maemo profile (same login as the so-called Garage account) and make your request there. Please read carefully the instructions, terms and conditions.

Some time next week we will provide more details about the selection process, but this is the basic you need to know:

  • Contributors apply themselves through their maemo profiles. No invitation is needed. Please don't send us extra emails, they won't help you.
  • Nokia & related professionals stay out. In case of doubt don’t ask: apply.
  • Open contributions & community involvement are the main rules to select the winners, but newcomers can get merits by proposing creative ideas requiring such device (open source and non-profit are a must).
  • The 500 discount codes will be distributed the same day the N810 is available for purchase in the online Nokia shops.
PS: We will develop more functionality around these profiles, as detailed in the maemo CRM requirements. Stay tuned.
