Could this puppy have a bootable linux SD card in the near future?

I worked quite a bit porting Froyo (Android 2.2) to the Nook Color in it's early days (I'm also cicada on the XDA forums), and helped a bit getting Cyanogenmod running on it.  It's an amazing little tablet.

Someone was working on a full Ubuntu port, but there are serious hurdles there, so I don't expect to see a 'real linux' on it anytime soon.

NC has a pretty powerful DSP chip, which is really a glorified FPGA, what'd be really cool is if someone could write an android app that takes advantage of this, might get 20-30mhash or so from it Wink

Unfortunately programming for the DSP chip requires proprietary toolkits from TI, and doesn't look like a walk in the park.

Wow, I was just thinking it would make a cool wallet.

Never dreamed it might have basic mining demo potential.

It's probably a pipe dream unless I suddenly win the lotto and can get back to hobby projects. Wink

It's most of the way there for being the cool wallet this

is exactly what you'd need to finish that.
however if you just wanted a portable android wallet there is a tablet i've seen in cvs for under 100usd that should do the trick just as well.

Wow, learn something new everyday. Found some reviews on the talbet. Impressive, but it looks like CVS is either sold out or no longer carries it.
