Interesting. Question is about attachable LCD panels - if that is available and cheap, could be interesting to make some stuff ...

Nice device !
I can't find how much RAM is embedded. But if you add at least 256 KB of RAM, you could run a custom EmuTOS on it :)

This is the CPU that the Palm Pilot was using. I use to have a dev board with it too.
It can't replace a 68000 in a system as it's missing a few pins like the BR/BG/BGACK ones as well as the whole E/VMA/VPA (and not AVEC).
But with a special version of Emutos one should be able to build a board with a MC68EZ328.

Some time ago i read already about the dragonball, the question is, is the CPU command compatible to normal 68K? If yes then it would be a think to build a system with it.
