Another alternative would be the WebOS platform which is very open and Linux
based as well.  Now that HP owns Palm, they have promised many "connected"
devices including a high end "Slate" with pen input as well as multi-touch
which would be very well suited to stylus (ink) or finger input...  Best of
all, the platform is wide open and officially sanctions emulators, open
source, and even specialized "official" channels for distribution...  I may
take some time later this year to look into what a port would involve and
see if I can get my children working on it...
