If I was to install an OS on a phone I would try a flavor a version of Linux. It would be fast, cheap and I could manipulate the hell out of it.

First of all, the new de facto standard is Crysis 2 now with DX11 and the High-Resolution Texture Pack. Second of all, Windows Vista can't even run on 1 GB of RAM much less Crysis.
[citation][nom]JD13[/nom]Why is this even a headline if they aren't even considering selling it in the US?[/citation]
Same reason so many other headlines are put up, which are cool inventions not intended for mass-production or sale. Some are only concepts or prototypes, for instance "Notebook Concept Charged by Dipping it in Water," while others are actual products that just aren't sold everywhere. Well, at least not yet.
I seen it for sale when i was in the cell phone store boot at the mall. My 3 year old motorolla Krazer flip phone, (mostly i picked it for the 8 hour talk time). I ordered a new battery to use up the store credit at the end of the contract.
It's too pricy if you only need a phone.
But if you need to take a laptop around with you, and of course your cell phone too,
carrying around just a phone and a charger is alot lighter and easier.
