I thought it was a given that Android would be fully compatible with Linux!
About Sony Xperia: "it's ironic that a phone built using Android, which itself is a Linux derivative, cannot connect effectively to a Linux system."
Same thing for Samsung galaxy nexus.
I don't intend to replace my 6 years old Nokia N95 yet, but it's a pain to have to sync with Nokia Suite (Windows only) for updating everything from maps to firmware.
The only phones that have GPS and WiFi that run some version of Linux are Nokia n900 and Garmin Asus nuvifone, as far as I know.
Is there any Android device fully compatible with Linux? Only the Android devices have the offline Google maps available.
This is kinda important to be left out of the full specs of a device when you shop for one - you have to dig deep into the manufacturer's web site to find out what desktop OS you need to install/download drivers for firmware updates and such
