Default Smart Q5, cheap TunerStudio device?

Just stumbled across the Smart Q5 / Q7 and apart from being dirt cheap, it looks like an ideal TS device.
Is has a 667Mhz cpu and 128MB ram and runs on some linux distro. Win CE is also possible but I don't think TS runs on CE?
Q5: 4.3" touch screen with 800*480, USB2, bluetooth, Wifi, 1GB flash, SC slot and 2000mA battery, 160grams
Q7 idem but with a 7" screen, usb host port (whatever that may be) and 4800mA battery, 480 grams.
Anyone using one?

Edit: there's also a V5 / V7 ao with double memory

I *still* had to click on a link, if I had that kind of energy I'd be a lawyer or something and driving around in a ferarri instead of living at home with my mom and driving a miata I bought of the old gay man down the street for 300 blow jobs.

So it runs android? Why would you get this over, say, a google nexus? I guess it is cheaper, though not much more than a netbook. Huh. ok, with bluetooth it's not so bad, you could use a keyboard. Actually, mostly you just need a number pad. :-)

If the Q5 doesn't have a USB Host then you won't be able to use a USB->Serial converter

It has a USB host. Screen size sucks though. Tunerstudio does a poor job of resizing properly. Even on my netbook it gets irritating.

Can't you get a low end netbook for less than the price of the styrofoam it comes shipped in?

Even if it didn't have USB, there's bluetooth serial ports. :-)

I believe it runs Ubuntu Linux, not Android.

Actually, the smartq v5 has a triple boot with Ubuntu, Android and Win CE.
Too bad TS is not good with lower resolutions. It seems 800x600 is pushing it, so I guess I'll start looking for other options.
Currently looking at the Viliv S5. Similar device with 1024x600, but more than twice as expensive :(

If the Droid had a usb host I would probably figure out how to code it myself. Supposedly in a future update host ability will be added.
