The best bet in this area, I think, is the Motorola a780; Harald Welte
has figured out how to update the software and has been busily working
on a port of the 2.6 kernel. http://openezx.org/ for more information.
If the phone itself were just a little smaller, I might have one by now.
Incidentally, Harald has just posted that he has a big GPL hearing
Should be interesting.
