not sure if there are any NDA's on the ones being given out. I'll gladly post my impressions when I get mine if there are no limitations. Hopefully it will be this week if they can sort out the logistics!

circumstances; and (ii) for the purpose of Nokia Developer, together with business groups of

(B) the parties may, in conjunction with the aforesaid and for their mutual benefit, disclose to each
other technical and/or commercial information relating to their respective businesses, facilities,
products, techniques and processes in form of oral disclosure, demonstration, device, apparatus,

co-operation shall be subject to separate agreements, including but not limited to a separate non-
disclosure agreement between the User and such involved business group of Nokia.

party (hereinafter "Disclosing Party") in whatever form as strictly confidential and shall not disclose
it to third parties without the prior written permission of the Disclosing Party.
3. The Information received hereunder shall not be used for any purpose other than the above
mentioned Purpose without the prior written permission of the Disclosing Party.

a reasonable opportunity to seek a protective order or equivalent, or (ii) obtains a written
assurance from the competent judicial or governmental entity that it will afford Information the
highest level of protection afforded under the applicable law or regulation.

time as the this Agreement is superseded by a subsequent agreement between the parties hereto
expressly covering also the activities related to the Nokia Developer, whichever is earlier. The

I was just reading that. Doesn't it contradict the MeeGo requirement of blogging/Tweeting about your experience of the device?

I have a habit of uploading Youtube videos of my current progress with the application. I assume I won't be able to do that while under the NDA.

I think the NDA is referring to a different kind of information. For example, if Nokia were to inform us of some technical changes to the N9 specification (that would affect application development), we would be forbidden from disclosing this information publicly.
