The Nokia N900 is a versatile phone/tablet/mini-computer. While its specs are outdated by today's standards, it's still hard to find something equivalently useful to hack on-the-go.
Most of it's drivers are already upstream, with just a few components missing:
Debian 7 was already mostly working on it 1.5 years ago.
- install a modern distro on the N900
- Work on fixing/upstreaming whatever is left to do
Bluetooth should be particularly useful when running a Desktop Linux on it. The driver needs some clean-up, and a forward-port of power management from the stock 2.6.28 kernel.
A good starting point can be found on GitHub:
