PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Sources tell us that Nokia is developing a Linux-based replacement for its S40 phones, called Meltemi. The news was leaked, accurately, by the Wall Street Journal last week. Now we can confirm it. The thinking is that a Linux-based replacement for S40 will allow developers to tap into proven development tools - and Qt. The April memo referred to Meltemi as a platform for 'rich Featurephones' and stated that development will be centered in Ulm, Germany. There's no U-turn, however. Meltemi had been long-been touted as a richer successor to S40. Windows phones will occupy the budget smartphone segment, not Linux."

If the UI is "all Qt" it might even be Qt Embedded, even more lightweight.

(and check my other post nearby, linking to some recent S40 handsets which already have comparable - or even sort of better - hardware than what you list)
