The typical mobile phone has plenty of features, but the non-standard options are limited, especially when you want to be able to perform specific functions with your phone. And enjoy computer programming. The Greenphone from a Norwegian company called Troltech is a linux-based GSM camera phone that comes with open source software, making it fully reprogrammable. The software package that is included is the Qtopia suite. With open source, the options for customization are just about endless, though you'll probably want to keep the camera software, as well as the address book and anything that controls the actual operation of the phone. The phone will be released next month. Price: $690.
