This geeksphone one is very interesting... I wonder if there is a newer
android rom available (I googled a bit and it seems there is a CM7), or if
it's possible to boot shr/qtmoko/...
ps: what id didn't liked about gta02 is the touchscreen, adn the fact that
never worked as a phone for me (the call quality is just really bad). but I
still use it for gps navigation (with shr).
