I think he meant concurrent models, not incremental releases. However, I think 
(and hope) once the 5 Step program for the maemo development is finished we 
will see a lot more Maemo devices from Nokia.

No. The N900 uses dpkg/apt and .deb packages but they are not exactly the same 
as debian ones. There are some additional tweaks and hooks to regard the 
limited ressources on mobile devices. However. You can re-package debian 
packages for maemo without recompiling the source.
