need a full keyboard

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 24.98.42.76] on September 17, 2007 09:40 PM
All I want is a phone like the Nokia 9300--that flips open to reveal a nice big keyboard and a nice big screen--running Linux.


I want to be able to string together commands and run my own scripts from the command line.


I want to be able to run emacs directly on my phone. Mutt, python, perl, bash, all of these things should work on my phone. And why not some gtk apps as well. How about PidginIM, GnuCash. How about Firefox?


It should have wifi and be able to make VOIP calls with SIP using any SIP compatible provider. It should be able to seamlessly transfer between my VOIP provider and my cellphone provider whenever I go in or out of wifi range.


Is this really too much to ask for with today's technology???
