And I was thinking of buying a device based on maemo. I'll pass now. Like the parent poster said, most devices will be sold with simlock and a plan. 2 year plan with maemo phone is still cheaper than buying the phone separately. Maemo was nice from what I read, but I really don't want a smartphone if it doesn't allow me to run my own kernel if I decide to do so.
Is there any phone I can buy with a plan that's still open and actually works and of which the next or current version isn't going to restrict what I can do when I buy it with a plan?
