Whaaaaat? Might want to Google again. IIRC, Nokia's phones were the closest to linux 5+ years before Apple or Google ever thought of making a phone. The n7xx, n8xx and n9xx should run most (if not all?) linux programs that can be compiled on an ARM.

IIRC, OS2008 was a port of debian.

Also, even symbian has Unix roots as I remember an old defcon or bh talk where the guy was explaining how they had implemented an old kernel with tons of known vulnerabilities.
