BSD on older smart phones?


I've been looking into *nix on smart phones recently, and noticed that NetBSD supports StrongARM and XScale chips that seem to be used in a lot of the older Blackberries.

Does anyone know which, if any, StrongARM/XScale phones support BSD? Are there any with enough power to support a full X11 stack?

I think that what you want to do it's not possible, missing drivers for your phone.

You may be luckier trying something like Ubuntu.
