Disrupting device ?
I highly doubt it will be a disrupting device, but I'm looking forward to a MeeGo device.
Just fueling the fire of speculation a bit more because it's fun:

Apparently these are some leaked press shots of the N9 which is apparently being announced in a few hours.

Looks nice. Watch those rounded icons though ;-)
Doesn't look like meego!?
Here are some actual photos that engadget dug up that seem to match the computer generated shots I posted earlier...

The general consensus when the last lot of leaked videos of the n950 came out was that Nokia's version of MeeGo had brought a lot of the Symbian Anna styling in with it. There have been a lot of indications that this device(s) they're announcing today are indeed MeeGo, so it at least fits.
Thanks, keep us posted!
Hardware was just announced in the live stream fro Nokia Connection. No Idea if it's MeeGo yet.

Congratulations to everybody who has contributed to the N9! This looks like a great device. Nokia, please hurry up to get it out on the streets! I want it.
A bout disrupting, when I hear the overall tone when Elop talks about Meego and the N9 in this leaked presentation of the Nokia Sea Ray Windows Phone, which by the way looks like the N9, I get the impression that they are more than surprised by the buzz around the N9 and Meego. The eventual success of the N9 might give Meego a new life inside Nokia. At least lets hope so...
