n800/n810. use mamona (which is openembedded based - same base os as openmoko).

well u need to "port" it to a new device. new xserver (maybe fbdev instead of
xglamo or xati or xomap or....) and kernel needs changing - and there will be
device-specific things in the distro - like assuming 480x640 resolution,
bootplash for example would be tied to this or affected by a change, battery
status another, and not to mention needing a different kernel with different
drivers etc., gsm subsystem etc...
it depends what you want to do in the end...
