I guess that if you decide to put maemo/meego UI to run in this chipset they would have no problem to distribute it. For what I heard, they started with Debian but open to external colaboration to create diferent distros firmwares.
The killer question may be:

is this something we can boot from USB

or

do we need a cleanroom environment
with all the
kludgeware ADB thisworks thatdoesn't insanity
that goes with squeezing a distro through an
Android enema of some sort.
Because that pig ain't got no wings.

If we can boot it through USB then this might be golden:
I have seen somewhere MTK had a kernel refence,
aand as shoddy as MTK is that may cure some issues,
assuming this is not running on top of an Android layer.

(BTW I bought a Nokia 6 and Android it runs is beyond hopeless)

Is there any information about the development state of the SailfishOS on the Gemini PDA. Its unclear for me, if it will be a community version or a fully supported Jolla SailfishOS

There is no a formal or official relationship in here - it's still a community port, and the press release just shows that SFOS can run on this device.

And it's been such a long time there isn't a single mention on the Youyota Tablet. Which literally makes everything much more difficult.

Sigh

Opening up the Gemini Linux kernel and boot loader source code

We are also now confirming that we will be opening the source code for the Linux kernel and the boot loader for the Gemini. We know that some users have been asking for this in order for the Linux developer community to be able to contribute properly.
This is the best news direction yet
