Plenty of linux devices with SD exist. (The entire zaurus line, for 

Even skipping the whole SD thing, how about a full-size mmc? You can't tell 
me there isn't another .5cm of room in there somewhere. RS-MMC has got to be 
the part I hate the most on this - I've got tons of devices, and it is the 
ONLY one that takes rsmmc. (Most take SD/MMC, or CF, and the new phone takes 
MMC only. But even the phone takes full-size mmc, and its a nokia 9300i with 
arguably much higher component density than the 770. Using rsmmc was a 
really bad move and hopefully one they won't repeat if they want adoption to 
pick up.)  Honestly, the 770 is only a hair smaller than my zaurus (c760) 
and the zaurus finds room for SD/MMC -and- a full cf slot.
