Anything you want! :)

It's my understanding that the apps coming with the phone will use
gtk+, so using that would give you a more similar look and feel.  If
you like C++, the gtkmm wrapper around gtk+ works really well.  Qt is
also quite popular.

The challenge for applications on this phone will be to have them be
portable from phone to desktop:  it ought to be possible for things
like games or information managers to be portable with just a
recompile, but then getting them to deal well with the radically
different screen sizes is what will make it interesting.  That's what
I'm planning to be playing with!
