i don't know if it is exactly what you need but i think the best buy is the Neo FreeRunnerhttp://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Neo_FreeRunnerI'm gonna buy it
The Neo would be ideal, but it's not released yet.If your friend does not want to wait, the Nokia N800 (or N810) internet tablet should even most of the bonuses (no GSM).
Treo 650 or 700 (palm versions, not windows) work. There is a small amount of setup required (detailed here http://linux.weilandhomes.com/treo650)
According to the latest update on http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Community_Updates, mass production of FreeRunner should start anytime from May 9th to 16th. So if your friend can wait a month longer, he can probably get a FreeRunner by then.
Nokia 6301 of 6300i?(syncs well over bluetooth.. but you'll need a recent opensync)
Nokia E65 or the likes (i think most phones based on symbian S60v3), you need a newer version of opensync, this you can find here: https://launchpad.net/~debian-opensync/+archiveand you can also have a look at my (outdated but maybe relevant) guide here: http://www.ugov.be/wiki/index.php?title=Ubuntu_with_Nokia_E65Syncs with google calendar, evolution (contacts only in feisty, havent tried in gutsy nor hardy since I don't use evo), kitchensync (others to be seen)
Traditionally Sony Ericsson phones use standard OBEX, so any one should do fine. I never heard about a SE that wouldn't work.
Don't samsung. The ways that device's syncing experience is terrible are too many to list.
