Is this new? Nokia seems to have started a blogger relations blog...
"Welcome to the Nokia Nseries N800 Blogger Relations Blog site. Here you will find blogger and media information that you can repurpose and utilize in your blog postings about the N800."

Don't know - it's very wierd though, as it doesn't appear to be created with anyone from Maemo's input nor do I see why it is necessary when we already have Maemo Planet. The only difference between this and the Planet is that this new site is clearly "moderated".
The 29 April blog entry for Luca ("Luca on BlueTooth on the N800") made me laugh though - the summary is clearly written by a Nokia employee and not the blogger, and I would have to guess it's not written by anyone familiar with Maemo development as they write:
Luca brings up an interesting point on how to improve the User Interface when it comes to the BlueTooth icon (http://lucafiligheddu.blogspot.com/2007/04/that-bluetooth-icon.html).
The point Luca brings up has been debated for some time in the Nokia bugzilla (https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=971) with various parties considering it a feature while others (mostly users) consider it a bug.
At least the Nokia summariser sees it the way most users do, and that it is a bad design decision in need of improvement. If the summary were written by someone closer to the Maemo development process the wording would have been far more diplomatic, assuming the blog entry appeared at all.
I'm sure Karel agrees with Luca and the Nokia summariser though! :)
