Hi all

I am awaiting delivery of a mobile phone - a F003 Chinese Iphone knock off. 
I am rather intrigued with these phones and woul like to unlock their 
potential and that of course means getting Linux to run on them.

I have only used Ubuntu so I am by no leans a Linux expert. I know that 
these phones run on a 200 mhz ARM-9 compatible processor and I believe 
Lemonix can run on ARM processors.

Has anyone here ported a version of Linux to such a phone and any thoughts 
on how difficult or otherwise it might be to do so?

The phone in question is here


It seems to me that with Linux running the phone could do some cool things 
eg run Skype. A linux blingphone!

Thanks Peter
