Very good. It would be wonderful to have a good support for the
most prominent arm cores. There are a lot of nice devices which
have an arm core. The openmoko phone (FIC 1973)  and the Nokia
N810  are just two of them. And they all feature a touchscreen.
I'm not sure if the chumby is based on openembedded  but it looks
like. So chumby and openmoko are both based on openembedded.
There is also a openembedded support for maemo  which tries
leverage the barrier to develop for it .
The native porting initiative could care about integrating to
build of squeak into openembedded. Tony Garnock-Jones has done
this  for the openmoko phone.
I don't know what interfaces exist in squeak to have access to
a touchscreen. A way to go could be to enable support for tslib
And, of course, I would like to have a calibration software for
my wiimote in squeak  :)
