The LART project http://www.lart.tudelft.nl/  is an open hardware 
platform based on the old SA1100. I believe they are working on a new 
SA-1110 and PXA-250 design.

Aleph One http://www.aleph1.co.uk/armlinux/LART/index.html  may still 
have some LART's in stock.

For PXA Intel has a dev board 

For Xscale Intel has the IXCDP1100 dev board 

For the IXP1200 they have the IXDP1200 platform 

For the IXP2400 and IXP2800  

For the IOP321  http://www.intel.com/design/iio/docs/iop321.htm

the PXA-250 is very popular for handheld and PDA designs, they have just 
added MMX instructions to the PXA so it will be a hot platform for 
handheld gaming, Mpeg-4, MP3 devices.  The IXP processors are used for 
networking applications and the IOP for storage applications.

The new iPAQ 3900 also makes for a budget 400MHz PXA250 dev platform. 
http://www.handhelds.org has quite a bit of software and How-To's on 
firmware conversions and updates for handhelds.
