So there's OpenMoko [1], Android [2], imcosys [3].

Any recommendations on one of these (or others) that I can buy "right
here right now"? My Palm Treo 650 has been dropped one too many times
and is getting a bit flaky. 

I want a phone/PDA that does Contacts/ToDo/Diary/Memos well, and sync's
with Linux easily. I had a Linux based Zaurus for a while a few years
ago and didn't think much of it - went back to Palm.
