Does anyone here use, or intend to use, a Linux Phone?

If it doesn't relate to Debian, but you still want to share it, please do it here

Something that looks pretty interesting, kinda combo nix - droid sort of.

https://wiki.debian.org/ChrootOnAndroid

Really interesting no matter what. Installed a terminal emulator on my cheapy Android phone, its funny messing with the thing. Installed busybox too but its not going to work on the thing natively w/o rooting it and atm dont want to even try. Did this before on a rooted device of course it was more fun to mess with then. Still lotsa cool and interesting parallels, maybe cross overs for gnu/nix + android on mobile. The AOSP (open source android) possibly.

Random weirdness: Folks can get mucho more open source on mobile just clearly made more difficult. Also folks tend to constantly gripe about Google but bottomline, they provide a lot of cool/useful services too. Ahhhh

I don' t use the phone, also my phone sucks only 1 GB of ram.
If I used the phone I would love to have debian with gnome :D
