The closest I can think of is Neo900, that recycles the Nokia N900 case
and mechanical parts and upgrades the hardware boards with free hardware
specifications. The cost of research of making such a device is very
high. I suppose dropping the baseband chipset to replace it with some
radio chip (e.g., taking inspiration from the Rad10 Badge distributed at
CCCamp15) might cut both the cost of research and production.
