    On a contract? Look at HTC Hero, Motorola DEXT, Samsung Galaxy, HTC Magic, Palm Pre, Motorola DROID (if it comes out over here).

    All Linux compatible, all running a Linux Kernel.

    iPhones are good, and for once, an apple product has spawned competition that is ACTUALLY shaping up to be better than their own product.
    I'm a PC, and I don't run Windows...

    Windows Mobile is pretty good and surprisingly works well with Linux. I'd wait or version 7 though, it's going to be awesome

    Don't get Windows Mobile, it's currently very outdated....

    Anyway, an HTC Hero or Magic is your best bet

    I have a HTC Hero and it is very good. Plus HTC just released a bunch of source code (forgot the details) so you can expect a lot of community driven improvements and customisation.

    If you want to wait there is also the Motorola Droid, Acer Liquid, Sony Ericsson Rachael and i believe LG are soon to release one.

    I highly recommend an Android phone

    I'm totally unfamiliar with the whole mobile phone thing, but I heard the Nokia N900 was quite cool as it runs linux.
