a bit of trivia I found interesting

We believe the chip in the Braille Note is the NEC VR41xx.
Several of us joined in a project to port Linux to the Braille Note this
time last year. We were unsuccessful when Pulse-Data would not supply
units for us to work with.
That's the real issue--one would need to be able to take the risk on
blowing away a few Braille Note boards, and especially the flash roms,
before one got it right. That would be costly to most of us, myself
