Homebrew Cellphone Applications.

It is relatively easy to create applications for J2ME handsets & test them on your phone. If you have Verizon, you've got BREW & you'll have to get it unlocked. There are ways of unlocking it yourself... We here at Sysop's Realm can't tell you specifics, but certain forums, IRC channels, and or websites will be more than willing to point you in the right direction... Just don't turn your phone into a brick.

There is, in my area, a HomeBrew cellphone group that meets at the Google Campus monthly. It appears from their website that they are working on running Linux on Qualcomm phones. This is good news, I think that cellphones are yet another untapped possibility for homebrew developement. (Link -- Silicon Valley Mobile Phone Club)

To bad I don't know much programming...
