not exactly, seems there's no phone that runs android yet,
it seems that freerunner will be capable of it very soon 

It's a white box, that runs openmoko which is a full linux distro aimed
at running on a mobile phone
(its on stable now), 

here is the soft stack

in the new specs it shows android as well, but mostly as an full stack

it's a true linux box with kernel 2.6.*
if the app fits, then runs,
ekiga soft voip phone so you can use it when on wifi
ogg player
etc, etc,

If anybody can find a better linux gadget let me know,
