        If Samsung had a phone that was as open/hackable as the Galaxy Nexus with a physical keyboard and screen (including use of the stylus for touching things that are too hard for fat fingers to touch) as good as a Nokia N900, that would be be the ideal candidate for my next phone when I eventually replace the N900.
        Even better if it had a GPU where the drivers (or at least everything but OpenGL) were open. (even better than that would be if the user-space library used to talk to the cellular baseband processor was open source but I know Samsung has valid reasons to keep that closed)
