Perhaps you want to have a look at POV-Ray (
It's a raytracing engine with it's own programming language, so you
could script a scene on the Nanonote, even rendering some small
previews, and do the final high-resolution render on a bigger machine.

Interactive modelling tools like Blender or Art of Illusion would be
pretty hardcore on such a small screen (and missing three button
mouse!), I think tools like POV-Ray are a better choice in this regard.

Oh, and IIRC you can later import your POV-Ray scene into Blender.
