Cellphone hardware alternative uses? ? Answered

I have a surplus of smartphones and a PDA/Kiosk device for store inventory. My question is, is it possible to use one or all of these devices and somehow create an UMPC? Maby flashed to Ubuntu? I am a massive cheep skate and if this is possible it could be as strong as my desktop that I assembled from freebies...

Is your desktop strong enough to ..... hold up your weight in binary :-)

No really how strong is it ?

well it has an asrock mobo, AMD Athalon 64 x2, and 4 gigs of ram, 4 harddrives equaling one and a half terabite. But I have an HTC Vivid, Moto PHoton, and Moto Droid Rzr 1 that I would like to reuse somewhere else. Particularly an UMPC.

WOW, Very Impressive for a freebie !!

I have to tell you, that is way more then any DIY UMPC I ever heard of.

But we have some super members who may chime in.

Thanks, I also have about 13 mid range comps that I picked up from an office after they upgraded the hole fleet! I wanted to make a Beowulf Cluster, but wanted to know if it was possible to use them as a server, in a home made cooling rack...
Also have about 10 LCD monitors I would like some creative options for.
