Sophia Systems's Sandgate 3-P runs Linux

Sophia Systems, a Japanese company, has developed the Sandgate 3-P, a reference design for an IP phone that can run Windows CE, Windows Mobile 6, and Linux. The 3-P isn't a final device for marketing to the consumer: instead, it's designed to give manufacturers a reference for building similar devices. Obviously, the first place the manufacturers will start is the external design -- this thing's ugly -- but inside, the 3-P is a relatively high spec device. It features a 624MHz CPU, a 2.2-inch QVGA display, and 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth, and W-SIM technology which integrates an antenna into the thumbnail sized card. Part of the package are a variety of tools designed to help manufacturers out, including install options for the three different OSes: something we kinda wish wasn't limited to back-end phone designers.
