Qt Trolltech will ship an "open" Linux-based phone in September. The "Greenphone" features a user-modifiable Linux OS, and is meant to jumpstart a third-party native application ecosystem for Linux-based mobile phones.

I was just having a conversation the other day about how awesome it would be to have an open, linux-based mobile phone to develop for. We concluded that it probably wouldn't happen because mobile carriers are all about locking down their networks. This is the problem with developing for the Hiptop/Sidekick for example. I'm very happy to be proven wrong.
