Wanna hack the Google phone? :) 
Jay Freeman, a.k.a. saurik, has managed to install Debian on a T-Mobile G1 smartphone. I wrote about it some weeks ago.

In this way, he obtained a device which is capable of running both Google's Android and the Debian install; an unrestricted OS with a huge pack of applications available, and a tweaked mobile phone platform for ant use and experiment.

I know, this is probably only for geek people, but this configuration would give you full control over your G1's filesystem and allows you to install whatever applications you might want.
Uhm, I'd like to be a German phone user!

"If you're interested in getting your hands dirty and playing with Debian-on-G1, Freeman has set up a G1-Hackers mailing list, where you can find like-minded individuals to chat with," writes Ars Technica's Erica Sadun.

Maybe this is the greatest world viral marketing campaign in ICT ever; nevertheless, the HTC Dream will be a valid base for state-of-the-art Linux OS, ARM-based, OSS, all-in-one personal system solution.

I'm already thinking about Chinese/Taiwanese industry developing low-cost G1 clones!
