While not exactly the N9, I have the developer edition, the Nokia N950.

It's open-ish. It has a security framework and disallows all sorts of
stuff (root is limited, etc), but Nokia do allow you to flash your own
custom kernel, as well as the community edition of Meego should you
wish. There's a whole thread going on about it at

It's definitely more closed than the N900 out the box, however.

I've heard it's a similar situation on the N9.
