o2 Xda Trion / HTC TyTN / Qtek 9600 - Which Distro?


Hi.

I've got a o2 Xda Trion / HTC TyTN / Qtek 9600 (all those names apply to the same device) Smartphone / PDA.

No I've been running Windows Mobile v5.0 on it since I bought it, and now I'd like to get rid of it.
I learned, there are many nice Distros for Handheld devices, but I need one, where the phone function works.

Could anybody advice me a good Distro for this device? Or do Distros like Familiar Linux come with a Softphone that works of some sorts?

Don't have one of those phones myself, but google is a wonderful thing...

EDIT: Just looking at the page, it looks like it's classified as a device family "Hermes" and that they haven't successfully ported linux to it yet.
