I also recently bought a new phone, a HTC Touch HD, to replace my aging Mio A701. Although it has a Windows OS, it doesn't force you to use ActiveSync and you can set it to instead appear as a card reader when plugged in via USB.
It got me wondering if the Asus would boot from the phone. It does:
The phone comes with a 8Gb microSD card so plenty of room for the Fedora image without disturbing the other phone software, pictures, and so on. I just used the Live image creator to write the image to the microSD card, made it bootable, put it into the phone and set the phone to card reader mode. Now every time the phone is plugged in into a PC it appears to be just a bootable USB stick with Fedora live image installed. All I need now is a small retractable USB cable and then there is no need to carry around the separate MicroSD card (or a USB stick)
