So, this thing is coming out before long but as I understand it the
hardware inside isn't really an unknown as its using the Quallcomm
Snapdragon setup that seems to be so popular as of late. My question
is, how realistic would it be to have Fedora running on this thing?
*and* if we were to get it running, what all would be necessary in
order to pull off that 12 hour battery life they keep talking about?

The HP Compaq Airlife 100 [1] is due out shortly as well. It will apparently be available from O2 in the UK. For running I presume we'll have similar issues like those that were addressed at UDS [2] for their ARM platform. I'd also be interested to see the advantages/disadvantages you get by compiling for ARM7 like they are over the ARM5 that we currently do, and what platforms we'd remove by doing so (sort of like the discussion had when we moved from i386 to i586 then i686.
