Very nice!
I wished some manufacturers would actually get a terga platform, or any other, and do a build like this with an HDMI/dvi connector to it, wireless N, and external USB harddrives or other devices.
Imagine, running a cellphone as bittorent client/chat server, or using it to set up a home webpage for upto 30 people viewing your webpage at the same time. Many businesses would do well with a cellphone that'd run their company website, instead of paying $50 per month to keep it running, and hardly have any visitors.
It'd also be an affordable alternative and toy for hackers, to play with.

We won't get innovative technology like this in Canada, due to the monopoly and price setting of the 3 major telecom providers. We are limited to 1GB per month of data (for $30) on our wireless devices before huge overage charges kick in.
