Looking for a Linux Phone with QWERTY Keyboard
I am still looking for a Linux Phone/PDA/MDA that has Linux on it with a Terminal and a Fully Function QWERTY-Keyboard.
It also needs to have Wifi.
But well I seem to be unable to find one...
I did find the OpenMoko but that doesnt have a QWERTY and I found a Nokia N810 but that isnt a Phone.
Also I did find Zaurus but they are just unable to be get around here...
And I know about www.handhelds.org but I just CANT find what I want
So, does anyone have a Tip/Advice were to look?

Hello again RobinVossen
What exactly do you want to do?
If you want to be able to ssh from wifi hotspots you can get a window$ mobile phone and install an ssh client on it. Ok, it is not a linux phone (on the oposite actually) but you can ssh to your boxes. Maybe you can do this with other platforms, too.
Unless for a specific reason you want your device to run Llinux, this is what I suggest. Otherwise give us your reasons and I might be able to suggest something more.

Well Since I am getting sick and tierd to carry so much devices with me I just want to put everything together. And well the main reason is since I want to be able to wear my Tools with me everywere I go since I travel alot. And well I do have a VERY nice PDA now *heheh* I want to get a Newer Device. Compacter with more Functions. I want to be able to do some Coding in the Plain For example and I want to wear Kismet with me at all costs. And scapy and hping and more of those Programs. And I want to have total Control. With WindowsCE you are kinda limited to LOTS of things. I just want a Device that I can carry with me that Enables me to not wear my mp3 player with me nor my pda nor a phone.
I want to be able to just run some pentest/forensics on the spot and do some coding. (No need to Compile just Coding.) I did already try to code on a WindowsCE device like this one: ( http://www.pdashop.nl/images/product...nid=1&shopid=2 ).
And I want to have my own coded Applications on it ofc.
So, well I need a Linux thing with Wifi and a qwerty.
Hope this helps you to help me

Personaly I just got an iPhone. Ok, it is not linux, it is Darwin... So what? It is good to have the whole armoury with you, but what the hell... iPhone has a terminal I can run bash, perl, ssh and I can connect to linux servers. Has wifi and Edge connectivity... Well all this if you have the jailbreak version. Ooooops.... I shouldn't have said that!
