It runs Windows CE 5.0 and this thing is *so* limiting (my Nokia N900

Unfortunately, I don't even know the architecture that this thing
runs, but on the "My Computer" icon of Windows CE, it says that it has
a "Samsung, ARM-ARM920" [sic] processor.
Hmmm. That looks weirdly similar to a lot of inexpensive Win CE boxes
that run on a VIA / Wondermedia 8505 CPU, or its siblings. They all seem
to have 128 MB of RAM and 2 GB of Flash. I've come close to ebaying one.
I could definitely be wrong, there's lot of cheap weirdness (and weird
cheapness) out there.
There is definitely some talk of getting Debian on the WM8505s -- you
may not have to do it all yourself. :)
