I am also quite interested.  I am currently writing a new kernel for the
Trendtac (also known as Skytone alpha 400 and 10000 other names; it has
a jz4730).  I would be very interested to put it on such an open
platform as the NanoNote.

So is it possible to get a development version?  Wat does it cost?  And
is there better documentation that what Ingenic provides (my main source
of information is currently the Linux source code)?

If things work out with my kernel, might it be an option to provide it
with the device as a default system?
