Exclamation Re: Linux On Nokia Phones??

Basically the idea seems useless... but though there are some phone like one mentioned here that can be reflashed to run linux...
or if one is a master os programmer one can develop an OS for his own phone. but nokia locks down the factory os that doesn't allow changes. so even if u develop the linux software for the phone you will need to remove the flash memory and burn th os to the new flas memory and install it again (practically impossible). anyways keep coming with some innovative ideas as this one! cheers!
