    Cell phone choice?


    I was wondering if anybody had suggestions on running linux on a phone. I need a new phone and want a smartphone or whatever they're called. LiMo has a bunch of phones on their site, but they have no details and I can't find the actual phones for sale anywhere. Any suggestions on phones/providers or more experience in this area than me (as I have pretty much none), or anybody know when it'll become available? I'm not that impressed with the G1, so I was hoping for other models.

    Also, not sure if this is the right forum, so Mods please move to a different forum if it's wrong. Thanks.

    Yes, you are in the correct forum.

    Lots of phones run on Linux now, but in most cases it's a specialized version that is used. I've posted a link in the past that listed many of the different phones currently using Linux. If I can located it, I'll post it here.
