Yep.. App Store is "beta" and Maps is 3.01 without the turn by turn. That kinda proves Nokia had more comittment towards the N97 (and Symbian) as the flagship (as opposed to the N900). N900 users are getting kinda neglected in the love department since we've been waiting for maps 3.03/4 for like months (without further confirmation from Nokia). The best GPS is Sygic on it as a commercial product.

Have you set up the Maemo.org repositories to get the software? I would highly recommend it.. What it lacks in commercial software is a massive Linux backed community that has converted nearly every piece of linux software to it (that it can handle). Even emulators for PS1 and N64 are running at or near full speed.

Apps development? man.. its massive.. just sign up to Maemo.org and look at the support for it.
