Does anybody already planned to have a sword frontend running on this eBook?


It's running Linux, with X11 (4bpp) and GTK, root access is available for
developers and third party software can be developped on it, it's using a
Wacom interface (and not just 3 or 4 buttons). You can add plenty of
disk-space (MMC-cards up to 1Gb and CF-cards up to 8Gb).

But, it's expensive, running Linux 2.4, according to
http://www.informit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=1238478 power management is
bad (and WiFi too for "2nd edition").

Do you think front ends could run easily on it? I see that greylevel display
and very high dpi can be a problem for a vanillia gnomesword.
