I own a Nokia N900. ^_^ It's my first smart phone. I bought it a few months ago. I didn't know it was capable of doing that. ;)

I wonder if any new phone will have that capability...

There's a lot of stuff you can do with the N900 if you just know what you're doing. I installed Gentoo in a dual-boot configuration on my phone, and true enough, I did it over SSH because typing it all would be rather time-consuming on the little keyboard, but it is still perfectly doable. Right now I have the phone mounted on the wall, running an RTSP-server streaming audio and video so I can keep an eye on things even when I'm not at home.

I wouldn't count on that, unfortunately ;) Possibly Ubuntu - phone, but other than that...
