They've been moved to the Talk page; currently there are two reasons things are being moved over to there into a "discarded" section:

1) Not including the '.org' as a prominent part of the design.
2) Infringing someone else's trademark.

HTH,

Ok, I've uploaded mine: http://wiki.maemo.org/Maemo.org_logo...sions#rsuplido

I agree that Jussi's submission is a good one. Adding the mobius strip is a perfect idea.

Okay, I know this is sort of off-topic, but it fits in with the title of the thread. The name that Nokia should be concerned with is nothing to do with Maemo, or logos, or anything like that. Nokia needs a marketable description for the category that the n800 is filling. Internet Tablet just doesn't cut it, because its not a concept that makes sense to most, and it doesn't begin to describe what you can do on one.

I've taken to describing it to people as a "mini computer" instead because that's the only thing that the general public seems to understand. Coming up with a better name for the device for marketability reasons should trump any of this stuff about Maemo and its logos. Quite frankly, if they want these to catch on (supposedly theres 2 more steps for mass marketability), the public doesn't care about the name or logo for Maemo.

Edit: I know this sounds negative so I'll add... I'm very impressed with some of the submissions, but my point is just that it won't really accomplish much in the long run to have a logo contest.

This issue has been discussed to death before ("palmtop" was a favorite), but whether or not the formfactor needs a better name doesn't change the fact that the Maemo trademark and branding needed a major re-definition.

Besides, just because some of Nokia happens to be focusing on this, doesn't mean that they aren't paying attention to other issues.

Also this is a logo contest for the community site and has nothing to do with Nokia's marketing stuff.

And there is people working on this question. It has nothing to do with maemo.org and the logo contest.

Remember my Nokia blog entry on that topic? You and Ragnar had some interesting observations.
