Wrong question, for me.

I will not use any other 'smartphone' (computerphone), which:

- is not Linux or FreeBSD driven and open as Linux/FreeBSD are normaly 
- does not have X11
- does not provide access by SSH to the system
- does not have a resistive touchscreen (to address single pixel)

So, an iPhone is no option for me; if my Freerunner will fail, I will
try to get it working again, and I will wait until the next generation
of OpenSource phones, even if I would have to reactivate my old Siemens
S10 for some time, meanwhile waiting.

Give me UNIX or give me a pencil :-)
