People have also gotten a full Ubuntu running on the Palm Pre (it normally
runs the kernel and normal libs, unlike Android, but runs some weird custom
Webkit-based GUI rather than X). Mine is my production phone, so I haven't
tried it myself. I also can't recommend the Pre for its build quality,
since I had to replace my first one due to a bad earpiece and the second
one is starting to develop earpiece issues too. But I would imagine
they'll be pretty cheap on Craigslist in about 3 months when those of us
who bought it on launch day go off-contract.
It uses gstreamer for its media stuff, and people used that to enable voice
and video recording before Palm officially supported it. No idea how tough
it would be to stick JACK in there or put a full desktop environment on it.
But apart from the N900, it's the closest thing to a Linux-based mass-
market phone there is.
