  Trolltech's Linux loving Qtopia Greenphone

I noticed that this as yet unreleased, interesting phone from Trolltech was announced recently and it piqued my interest so I figured I should post about it. The Qtopia Greenphone seems to be a phone that linux application developers can use to basically test out their applications on. For example, you decide you want your Linux app to work on cell phones so you go out and pick up one of these to install your beta app on.

While the Greenphone isn't intended to be a full on consumer-ready typical mobile phone, if you use a sim card, you should be able to get away with plugging your sim card into a Qtopia Greenphone and have it work. Giving you the basic phone functionlity and access to your open source beta Linux apps. For some reason I just think that is pretty cool.
