It runs linux kernel 2.6.29 so one might be able to compile speakup 
modules to run with that kernel.  I think it is an lx2 processor, no idea 
about the speed.
Ram is on the low side at 32M and I do not know if the keyboard would be 
atall accessible.
They say 4 hours battery life.
Still quite interesting.
regards, Willem
