There's been a few Linux smart-phones in the past, like the Nokia N900 with Maemo. Could a pocket sized smart-phone run a full environment like KDE or Gnome or Mate or LXDE, along with proper Linux applications like Libre Office or Gimp? Difficult to see how that could be done with a 4 or 5 inch screen.
