Hey, I found and bought myself a ZipIt Z2, which is a tiny little computer with a keyboard, an LCD, and ARM XSCALE processor @ ~400 MHZ and an sd card.
It also has wifi, usb host and is just a really nice hackable gadget.

Here's a photo of it:


I hope you all like that cute little device as much as I.

It runs Arch Linux, OpenWRT and Debian.
You can get it for ~50$ here.

Greetings, Benedikt

Seems very nice. I was a little disappointed at the 312 MHz (or 400?) default CPU speed, though, considering my HP Prime is 400 MHz despite being a calculator. But it's much cheaper than the Prime so I guess it's a good tradeoff. I probably won't get one for now, though, since I am saving money for a TI-83 Premium CE (if I can get one shipped to Canada) or TI-84 Plus CE.

You can actually overclock it pretty easy.

DWM (http://dwm.suckless.org) with some custom keybindings would probably be really great on this.
Surf (http://surf.suckless.org) would probably be nice as well.

gmenu2x is the WM.
The native resolution is QVGA (320x240).
It supports 3D. Some 3D games are tested and running.
One of the coolest is Doom.

Get TilEm running on that! http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilem/
I guess that's possible. I only need to set up another cross compiler.
