I went to a Nokia N900 about 9 months ago, but will probably go Android at
some point.   There's a lot of noise about Android being ported to the
N900, so that's where I'll probably go once the port is actually complete.

I'm a Linux sysadmin, not a developer.  I'm good with /bin/sh, regular
expressions and not a lot else.  If there's something I can do to
contribute, I'm happy to, but I'm don't know how much help I'd actually be.

Frankly I was quite happy with my Treo 680, but I took a gig where they
demanded I have a phone with features the Treo just did not have, so I went
to the N900.
