Subject: Anyone fancy doing a Mediapad port?

I met a guy importing some nice arm-based tablet hardware which currently comes with WinCE but he'd love to have Debian Linux on it. He can provide hardware (3 devices) and info, including schematics if you don't mind signing an NDA (or he can redact info if not). The Device will be actually on sale imminently, but I don't have a URL yet. It's about 3/4 the size of an acer aspire one, and nearly all screen. Anyone fancy some hacking-for-toys? First thing is a kernel port which shouldn't be too hard as most of it already has support. Looks like wireless could be a problem as so fas as I can see The CSR Unify chip UF1050 (on the APM6628 module) only has a proprietary (source available) driver.
