Devices with armel architecture (I am biased against Intel and its continuing association with Windows) are Pyra and Gemini. Costly, large and intending to have full-sized keyboard and provide movie-watching experience on their display. Not exactly like a pocket digital assistant, handheld of the previous century...

Thank you. Best wishes.

Well, Windoze is moving to ARM on the low/mobile end, and if you exclude Android linux probably runs more on x86 than any other architecture. The days of WinTel being an all-powerful beast are behind us.
