How about in terms of viewing movies or graphics - is that sensible; the

Yes, I'm quite aware that the GTA02 meets these requirements, as does
the UTC universal.
I wouldn't have posted here after all and named those two phones
The question is, do any _other_ phones also fall into this category? Of
course, I do want
to run OpenMoko, and will do the necessary work if really required to
make it do so if
it already runs linux.

With respect, you seem to be a bit confused and your reasoning is
backwards. The initial responses I got were clearly trolls (by
definition _they_ unfriendly and annoying people). I made an effort to
be clear about what I was
asking and haven't demanded anything, and the first responders had made
no effort to really read what I said. Save your criticism for them.
Unfortunately, it just looks like to outsiders that people are getting
overly defensive it if looks like I
might be trying to criticize OpenMoko/Neo. Let's try and restrict our
opinions to what I'm really asked.
Thanks for your feedback.
