The open source hardware Ben NanoNote is an inexpensive -- about $100 US -- tiny, shiny and totally rad geek gadget for Linux nerds. It has a keyboard, USB port and micro-SD card slot.

Ben NanoNote runs OpenWRT and is copyleft hardware. Gnu.org explains: “Copyleft is a general method for making a program (or other work) free, and requiring all modified and extended versions of the program to be free as well.” Schematics for the NanoNote can be downloaded from qi-hardware.
