What is planned for the phone's OS? Will it be Android? Maemo (Debian, straight up!), or are there any other options?
Android - means ties to google, and at the same time this is a solid backbone. HOWEVER, google has their own problems as well, and we're relying heavily on another (commercial) company to produce the software, and then altering our hardware accordingly.
Debian - means Debian. Nuff said Comes along with all the beautiful linux regressions, security is also a potentially difficult step in my eyes.
Or are we planning to roll our own? That can be done too, but may as well be a forum of its own
Repos will more than likely include ported versions of all popular current Open source solutions, for operating systems, and we are negotiating for a BSP for Winmo 6.5 / 7 (After the exclusivity is gone for the WinMo 7 Processor) Leaving most options open.
Additionally, I have a plan for a Perl / Python OS, with OpenGL ES extensions, QT4, and GTK+, using DirectFB 1.3, and DRI as the surface...
