To quote my olde mail on the subject

The problem is that the docs for the proprietary system ASIC used in
the Series 7/Netbook are not publicly avialble.  I think Linux folks
had a special deal with Psion PLC to get access to the docs.

H/PC machines supported by hpc{arm,mips,sh} ports might be a better
option if you are looking for a small pocket netbsd terminal.

If you want to have fun and earn geek points for porting to Psion, ask
Wookey <> from PsiLinux project if he
still has contacts in Psion PLC that can help with getting the docs.
