Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Htc Hd2, originally came with Windows mobile 6.5, has been flashed with Windows phone 7, (i love wp7 interface). Recently has screwed up though and will freeze while attempting to boot so i'm going to flash android onto it tomorrow or one day soon. Recently have fallen inlove with the Xperia play though after realizing it's retro gaming potential, and my girlfriend happens to have one she doesn't want, so once i can get that unlocked, i'm pretty sure i'll ditch the htc hd2.
I have Nokia 900 and I'm perfectly good with it. It does not have much applications like Android. But it has applications what we need most for chatting, social networking, and some other linux related stuffs.
WISHING YOU A WONDERFUL AND FRUITFUL HAPPY NEW YEAR
Distribution: Debian Sid AMD64, Raspbian Wheezy, various VMs
Nokia E71. Got it because I like to have a qwerty keyboard and didn't want to have to pay an extra £5 a month for Blackberry push I wouldn't need. It's always been buggy but I like it and it does what I need it to (email, web browsing, phone/text, PuTTY if/when required).
That said, I hope some time next year I'll be able to afford an Android phone so I can play with things like remote control apps and possibly even try to write a very simple app myself.
I like a real keyboard but the fact the new Motorola Razr is water resistant means it could be on the list.
