My Next Phone
OK, I think we probably have a winner. For some time I has been thinking about replacing my aging Nokia 6310i with something newer, more capable, and preferably Linux-based. I have been looking at some Motorolas, but it seems that this one is way better: It is truly open, including the whole kernel and hardware drivers (it only runs a proprietary GSM stack on a separate CPU), it has GPS, and it allows users to run X11 apps (unlike Motorola, where user apps are mostly limited to that slow Java). I hope it will be released soon and I hope I will find somebody to order it from.
