New devices will use be using MeeGo. Nokia may put it into
maintainence mode, but maemo.org could continue work on it.

Rather than RPM, I think the major difference will be the switch
from Gtk to Qt and what is likely to be complete rework of the
user interface.

The thing that put me off the N900 was the 500 UKP starting price.
In the middle of it's lifetime the N810 was around 200 UKP.
