Debian GNU/Linux Packages for Mobile (Cellular) Phones

Writing the Linux Mobile Guide - Installing, Maintaining and Tuning of Linux on Mobile Computers, I researched Linux applications for cell phones. Since Debian/GNU Linux is my favorite distribution I started to collect information about (cell) phone related Debian packages. Though this text reflects my personal thoughts only. It's not an official Debian document. The list is probably incomplete yet.

Back to Debian/GNU Linux and Knoppix for Laptops, Notebooks, PDAs, Mobile Phones, Portable Players, ...

Quotes from Debian Weekly News - DWN:

Debian on your Cellular Phone? No, it won't run Debian. At least, it won't run it at the moment, but we'll better check what processors future cellular phones will be built upon. Christian Wenke [10]played with [11] SCMxx , which exchanges data with Siemens mobile phones, such as logos, address books short messages etc. The Debian logo included in that package is useful for large screens only, but Christian created [12]one for small displays (like for the M25i or S35i), based on the [13]image from onShore. Christian provided the commandline required for uploading the image to your phone. ...

... Henrik Härkönen told us that he prepared Debian [2]swirl images for the Ericsson T65 cellular phone.

Dast has put together a small set of compatibility reports for Sprint cellphones that can be used under Debian for Internet access.

A. P. Godshall wrote: "I took the official logo and scaled it to a good size [archived link] 120x160 for my newish GSM cell phone (Sony/Ericsson Z520a, which I'm told is the North America version of the Z520i) and transferred it via bluetooth like so /usr/bin/obexftp -b -p debian-120x160.png The phone obligingly offered to use it, as wallpaper."
