      Nope. There are plenty of modems that can talk using standard serial interface (or serial-via-USB) and AT commands, and those are always well-supported in GNU/Linux. Of course phones like Neo1973, Neo Freerunner, GTA04 or Neo900 use modems like that.

      N900 uses Nokia's proprietary BB5 modem which uses ISI interface. This modem was widely used in lots of Nokia phones, not only smartphones, but nowhere outside of Nokia.
