Looks like Notion Ink has already done so, sort of:


The OS is proprietary (android), it would probably fail it you dropped
it in a puddle and it has too many radios (GSM, UMTS, GPS, and
Bluetoot, besides WiFi) -- but at least it has connectors!  Remote
villages shouldn't waste power with "inductive charging", and can you
imaging debugging a cranky XO-3 via multitouch?
