I use a palm that synchronises perfectly with Linux, but obviously isn't
open source. If it is useful it is a Treo 650 (very nice :)
Also, there are very nice Japanese phones running Linux, but yeah I don't
know of any others, sorry.

      "The first man who, having enclosed a piece of ground, bethought
   himself of saying ‘This is mine’ and found people simple enough to
     believe him, was the real founder of civil society. From how many
   crimes, wars, and murders, from how many horrors and misfortunes might
    not any one have saved mankind, by pulling up the stakes, or filling
                  up the ditch, and crying to his fellows:
    ‘Beware of listening to this impostor; you are undone if you once
     forget that the fruits of the earth belong to us all and the earth
                itself to nobody’." - Jean Jacques Rosseau
