    I quite like the idea of having Linux in my pocket, so I may even
    splash out on an Android phone and have a play :)

    I remember a couple of Linus Tech Tips/ShortCircuit videos from awhile ago that showed off some phones that ran Linux out of the box:

    It looks like the user expierence wasn't... great, but perhaps with some better hardware it might actually be usable... one day.

    Wow, these look like ideal play thing. I wouldn't be looking to use it as a phone device per se, so one of these may well find its way onto my Santa list 2022 :)
