You could probably make one out of a rasp. Pi if you were determined enough.

Nobody will break in with mass market appeal for that reason. But if they can move enough units to enterprise and nerds, it might be a viable business.

I'm clueless when it comes to this ****, but isn't Android kinda open source? Could they legitimately make a google maps or YouTube application for a Linux phone?

apple can't even make a good google maps clone, what makes you think some freetards will be able to hack something good together?

no one is ever going to break into the market because the people who complain about not having a 3rd option are the same people who go out and buy android/ios phones

I recall Ubuntu saying they were making a phone/phone OS some years ago. Guess that never came to fruition.

As an aside, palm's -- and later HP's, i guess, technically -- webOS was really freaking cool and also linux-based. I had a pre+ and loved it. Took a glance at wikipedia just now to see what HP ended up doing with it and apparently, through a series of unfortunate events, it will continue living on in LG's new smart fridge? (WebOS - Wikipedia). What a terrible way to go...
