    Does it mean the phone is hackable, but i think they only realesed thouse in east asia. Not in europe *sobs*.
    I would at least believe that it is hackable, since most of the mobile Linux distros are fully free software. I have no idea how easy it is to upload modifications to the phone, though. I would believe that you need to reflash it in order to upgrade to your own kernel, but I don't know.

    And yes, they are, unfortunately, almost only avaiable in East Asia so far, but I've got a friend who works for Motorola, and it seems that they are planning to release Linux phones in Europe before long.

    I've had a lot, my two current phones are a Nokia 6600 and a 6100 (Work and personal). I love Nokia for their simplicity. No other manufacturer has come near for me. I think my favourite phone I ever had was my 3210. Great little phone. Have you guys seen that new Nokia smartphone that's coming out and runs Gnome with linux?

    Just for interest, my Samsung X460 is a more or less entry level WAP model, but I'm about to get a usb data cable for it. It has a 7MB memory (thats more than my first ever PC had!) and I want to see if I can swap files around in Linux.

    Like Dolda - above - I really wanted a Linux phone. Partly for bragging rights, and partly because I think it would be very cool indeed.

    must confess my ignorance here and admit that I never knew there was such a thing as a Linux mobile.

    On another note I am very pleased that my new Nokia 6630 links to Linux perfectly through Bluetooth. I can even send and receive contacts to and from Linux --> Mobile (Exporting contacts through Kontact as a vcard and sending them to my mobile)

    The funny thing is I've always disliked mobiles, but now that they have operating systems, net access, more storage and connectivity I'm changing my mind!

    This one looks good.
