I have the Nokia N810 and use it a lot for music, books,
notes and calendaring.

Bash versions 2 and 3 are both available, but the Perl is
very mininal. Lots of Python though, as many of the apps
are written in that.

Also the keyboard is missing a few important keys for UNIX
programming, such as the single quote, pipe and escape.
