Nanonote was born (as i understand it)
using the shenzen approach. It is not
a crazy idea to look ahead to using
a similar approach to develop a tablet.

The note that was posted indicates these
devices are already pretty cheap. Anything
that run Adroid runs Linux underneath.

It is not a giant leap to think about a future
copyleft device with a 7 inch screen, useful
i/o such as USB host and OTG.

May a thousand flowers grow.
