Got this today on one of my feeds:

It's a small PDA with no display.  It uses audio input/output 
(supplimented with a rubber membrane numeric keypad with a few 
other buttons and a D-pad).  There's also an available "dock" 
which is bascially a small keyboard into which the PDA slides on 
the right-hand side like an old-school Atari cartridge or 
something of the sort.

And of most interest for this mailing list, it runs embedded 
linux.  They say most of the software was written in python which 
makes it fairly hackable.

It's pricey, but still, interesting to see what's being done.
