For a while, I was getting into hacking the ZipIt IM
device.

http://www.linuxdevices.com/articles/AT8107883197.html

Decent sized graphic LCD, QWERTY keyboard, built-in
Wifi and even has a serial port with the addon of an
ST202 IC.  The really cool part...it runs on embedded
linux.  However, I am too crummy of a programmer to do
anything with it on my own.

They have a new color, backlit version now:

Not sure if it still runs Linux.
--------------------------

In addition to the references that Jason gave, it appears that ZipIt  
Wireless is encouraging hacking (collaborating) of the latest version  
(Z2):
linux.zipitwireless.com

Might be a possible platform, still.  Has a QVGA (240x320) color  
screen, keyboard, miniSD slot (up to 8Gb), PXA270 processor and  
hardware connector for future expansion.
