Possible? Yes.[1]
Feasible? Not really.[2]
Useful? No.[3]



[1] It's Linux, it's been hacked, it runs Java code and OS2008 toolchains
are apparently appropriate.
[2] There's no concept of a "second monitor" in Maemo, so it'd require
specific app support; be quite a lot of work and be fairly fiddly. IOW, if
you've asked "possible", you won't be able to do it yourself.
[3] The e-ink display, at 800x480 is great, but still only has a refresh
rate around 1-2fps. And, of course, it's limited greyscale.
