On October 31st, developers, beta testers, and anyone lucky enough to have a pre-production Nokia N900 are doing a test marathon of applications before the mobile computer hits the shelves. The Maemo community will host the event from 2-7PM to make more apps available for end users. Applications that pass the tests will appear on Maemo Extras.

At publish time, there are 22 applications made by the community ready for end users. According to a recent email sent to Maemo Summit participants, there are 74 applications waiting for evaluation. With the help of testers, the marathon will attempt to have 50, 75, or even 100 stable applications from the community by sales start. The Nokia N900 is planned to hit retailers this November. Have you pre-ordered your N900 yet?
