Launching the Summer'12 Device Program: N9s and N950s to giveaway

Via: @Jaffa2

Quim Gil has consolidated discussion on the N9s and N950s Nokia plan to distribute to the Maemo community, and branded the efforts under a "Summer'12 Device Program" moniker: Nokia is sponsoring a maemo.org device program consisting of 60 Nokia N9 + 40 Nokia 950 with free delivery. One of the goals of this program is to help reducing the list of missing apps (or alternatives & related features). The devices will be distributed through 4 activities. Hopefully this will result in a burst of high-quality, innovative, Qt apps for Harmattan.
