[...] Hartz says that moving behind closed doors is a temporary measure and that the code will be published as soon as the developers are permitted to do so. Although the situation is a little bit frustrating for developers, it's arguably an extremely positive sign that Nokia is getting close to finally delivering a MeeGo product."

I'm just hoping that:

a) that it won't be another netbook/tablet-centric release with the handset release a late and incomplete afterthought, and

b) the handset release will finally be a usable day-to-day OS for the N900 (not being able to receive phone calls unless the dialer app is open 24/7 is NOT ready for primetime).

Was told something similar happens with the iPhone (don't have one myself) because as soon you listen to MP3 songs the incoming phone calls are not notified...
True or false?

I agree with (a), but I don't follow you on (b). I've never personally had a problem receiving calls with an n900, and it certainly doesn't require the dialler UI to be open to receive them.
