Try a Nokia N900 Maemo device,
I've had an n800 for about 3 years now. Original battery, even, though
it is time for a replacement. I passed on the n810 for a bunch of
reasons, though. Didn't like the carrier selection for the n900.

yes if ur a real IT person and your very well versed in terms
of knowledge and you use
gadgets then you should know it is a swiss knife among all mobile
I'll use here a phrase that's current at the TV network where I work,
used when someone who's getting paid to make the show suddenly discovers
something everyone else in the room already knew:
"Welcome to the show."
you can easily compare the difference, with N900 you don't need all
those APP markets
you have all the apps develop for Linux at your disposal, just use
apt-get and then ur done.
Though as with all Application Managers, they make backout hell; I use
FBreader on my n800 as probably my primary app... and the newest build
has a couple of *really* nasty bugs. And it's a pain in the *ass* to
go back to an older build, without getting married to every detail of
how the appmgr works.
Or going off the reservation, after which you'll be prompted to 'upgrade'
> HTC thunderbolt is not a bad looking phone. one most important thing
all the mobile
phone devices out there it is only Nokia that support full networking
of IPV6 on it
no hacking needed to get it running.
Note that the Thunderbolt will be an LTE700 phone, and therefore (or
so I'm told) natively IPv6 on the air-interface; this will likely make
that less of a problem than on older phones.
