    No. The only mobile phone i know of that runs Linux is the Qtopia Greenphone
    from Trolltech.

    There are lots of linux based mobile phones. If you want to run
    linux on a S40/S60 mobile, you should know the hardware details of
    those mobile phones (which is not possible). Moreover user's cannot
    flash their mobile phones, except for Greenphone and another phone
    coming up next year (Neo1973).

    FWIW, you *can* flash an S40 (and probably most other cellphones
    as well), if you know where to look for the right flash software.
    People do it all the time in hopes that the new firmare will have
    less bugs/more features...

    Nevertheless, to actually write your own firmare for a
    cellphone without knowing all the details of it's hardware
    is pretty much impossible.

    The price and the features is quite impressive, but the lack of a real
    keypad is a big problem. Its nearly impossible to type on a touchscreen
    without looking at it.

    Motorola have linux source code for their mobile phones a1200, a780,
    rokr etc at opensource.motorola.com.



    imho an oxymoron of a solution.

    Hello ,

    You cannot flash mobiles like Nokia 6600 as a user. You have to go
    to Nokia service center and get it flashed! Only for some high end
    mobiles, Nokia is releasing the firmware update software, using which
    we can update the phone firmware!
