Do you know the WikiReader?

« The WikiReader is an inexpensive ($99), low-power, 4-inch square
touchscreen LCD display device pre-loaded with the text of three million
Wikipedia pages on a microSD card. » (LWN)


Software sources are available with instructions to cross-compile the entire
system from a Linux computer, it seems to be GPL and BSD licenced. System is
stored on a microSD card, so you don't have to hack anything to run a
different system on it. Just plug a microSD.

It would be great if we can run sword on it. Did anyone look at it?

We probably need to pre-index modules.
