How about the "soon-to-arrive in Canada" Pre from ... Palm?

I've seen a few examples of getting to a command line in the onboard
WebOS - even running openVPN on the device.  Some detail here:

Package management looks like a variant of that used for OpenWRT on routers.

The official dev page:

There's even an O'Reilly book on Pre application development.
