My early-adopted PocketCHIP status:
I got my PocketCHIP with the hope of creating a somewhate secure mobile PIM (personal information manager) with email, texting, and IRC (internet relay chat). If I can get a mic on it, I'll also install a softphone. So far I am primarily focusing on the user-interface and am still learning how to create a password secured user.
The surf browser works well for me with a few keyboard commands. I think it will be helpful to export my firefox bookmarks to an html file and load that instead of the NTC help-file that currently loads with surf.
On my desktop computer and laptop, I currently use OSMO and EMACS org-mode for PIM, and Xchat for IRC, FBR for ebook reading. I got emacs installed on the PocketCHIP, but haven't made the large menu bars go away yet, so might install a different version of emacs, but not looking forward to all the multiple key presses I'll need without an Xwindow version. I'm at the same place with IRC so far. I have not installed an ebook-reader yet.
I will want to read microsoft documents, but won't edit them on the PocketCHIP. Emacs will render them as some kind of PostScript for reading, so I'll try that. Sometimes I save them as html files, so I can read them with a browser.
Xournal is working well for reading and marking PDF files and other graphics. I posted a screenshot:
That's my status update.
