Linux smartphone model to develop small apps

Post by leonardodi » Tue, 20 Jun 2006 06:49:13


Greetings,

I'd like to have an advice about Linux mobile phones (or
"smartphones").

I was interested in buying one on which I could develop and run some
small application i.e. in Java or Python. It should also have a digital
camera and a MP3 player.

Can anyone suggest some not-too-expensive model available on the
European market?
Thanks in advance for any hint.

(the article's original followup, comp.os.linux.portable, is one that
neither I nor my Usenet provider have ever heard of)

I'd be delighted to hear an answer to, the same question, though for
the US CDMA (in particular, SprintPCS, though a good Linux phone could
move me off of Sprint) market and supporting native apps. There seem
to be half a dozen near-contenders, but none that quite manage the
same level of "adding a phone to the platform" level as my current
PalmOS Samsung I-300 (needing replacement within a few months) or the
current WinCE offerings.

Try this:

AFAIK, it's not restricted to any single provider, so just stick in a
Sprint PCS card and you're good to go...
