Sorry for the late post. I'm a typical developer who Tommi wrote about. I need to train/educate myself to treat public discussion with higher priority.
So what were the conclusions of My Mobile Site widgets trial?
As you might have noticed, we have set up a new section called Nokia Beta Labs Archive:
Quite a many of you have asked us to indicate the technical maturity of the apps and services available here at Beta Labs. We liked the idea. When people have the right expectation level, everybody wins:

- others can wait until the app is "mature enough"
- feedback becomes much more constructive

As Nokia Maps 2.0 beta launch was the obvious highlight of Feb 2008 here in Beta Labs, I asked the Nokia Maps development team to nominate the Contributor of the Month. Seems that it was an easy task:
"Geoff seems to be the frontrunner in the quality of the comments."
- one manager from Nokia Maps team
"Geoff! Definitely. I don't even need to check, I remember his name by heart."
