I have to say something here :-)
>Symbian is nearing end-of-life as the chosen platform for smartphones
Well, thats not true. Symbian is going to be the platform for smartphone development for Nokia. Nothing is stopping them from doing so.
Maemo is target to high end mobile devices - tablets/netbooks, etc. So you will be seeing some products from Nokia on Maemo targeted to such consumers. Maemo and Symbian are never on the same level of competition, remember.
Symbian has its open plan for years ahead - Symbian^1 (already present), Symbian^2 (Starting 2010), Symbian^3 (mid 2010) and Symbian^4 (end 2010) ahead. Also, the same pattern reflects on Nokia's roadmap - the plan for 2010 and ahead from the Nokia's Capital Markets day.
Regarding PyS60, yes its getting better and getting more mobility functionalities - it has been ported to core 2.5 and you should be seeing a new release very soon as well. And yes, Python is also supported on Maemo.

Symbian is nearing end-of-life as the chosen platform for smartphones
for Nokia. As you might know N900 was recently released in select markets
around the world and it runs a fully Debian-derived Linux OS named
Maemo. I have been reading through N900 and Maemo reviews and
this looks like disruptive technology.
Symbian is still the largest selling smartphone OS right now, but
can't stand up to the challenges posed by Android, Web OS etc.
Symbian is not developer friendly and has stability issues. I am
looking forward to get my hands on an N900 and hacking on the
Nokia is betting on Maemo - the only current issue is that it
is fully GTK based (Hildon/Matchbox) but I read that Nokia
is planning to bring in QT as a choice to it pretty soon.
Since Nokia invests a lot in Qt this definitely make a lot
Take a look at N900 and Maemo. It is surely one of the
directions mobile development will take, the other being
Android and its clones.
