I guess you are reffering to Yopy from Samsung. It should have been availabel sometime in the states if it went out to the market as it was planned but may be not.

I've been pondering getting a laptop, but I've quickly realised that's not
quite what I'm after. I want a linux handheld, and I know there are several
out there, or almost out there.
One obvious thing I want is internet. We've got cool stuff coming down the
pipe this year for cellular, and of course with a serial link and a cell, you
can get online now. Colour is desired, but not needed.
I'd love to be able to hook up an external full size keyboard, or have a small
thumb keyboard. I've seen the Blueberries, and they have a large enough
keyboard to type on (although, slowly). Text recognition doesn't work with
my handwriting ;)
Anyhow, I guess what I'm wondering, is if anyone has seen a linux handheld
that they were happy of, and that fit in their pocket?
No, you're looking for a machine that's been advertised in "MaximumLinux" and "The Linux Journal" for some time now ...
Damn, what was that thing called ... a little bigger than a palm, entirely Linux based, modem/IR/USB/etc ...
