At 300 buckaroonies, the Neo1973 by OpenMoko is usable on all GSM networks, and it's completely, 100% hackable and open. Many of its features are the same than that of the iPhone. Here's the specs from OpenMoko, since they're website has been getting pounded by diggers. (Take it easy, Digg.)
  • 2.8" VGA TFT color display
  • Touchscreen, usable with stylus or fingers
  • 266MHz Samsung System on a Chip (SOC)
  • USB 1.1, switchable between Client and Host (unpowered)
  • Integrated AGPS
  • 2.5G GSM – quad band, voice, CSD, GPRS
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • Micro SD slot
  • High Quality audio codec

Sweet? Yes.
