Maybe the cheapest - but my phone is smaller and runs linux; I believe gumstix have held the smallest linux title for several years.

The Raspberry PI is more about price and reasonable amount of computational power, then smallest possible size. For a bit more money you can get much more power with a smaller form factor. Granted you will need a interface board if you need normal HDMI, USB, ethernet connectors etc.
