[Haskell-cafe] Haskell on a PDA (was "Implementing Mathematica")

I seem to recall that Aarne Ranta ran Hugs on a (Sharp) Zaurus PDA at  
one of the ICFPs a few years back. Aha, here in fact is a picture of  
his GF (Grammatical Framework), written in Haskell, running on a Zaurus:


There seem to be more details available through his web page (a site- 
specific Google search for "zaurus" would seem appropriate).

A broader Google search for "Haskell Zaurus" returns (for me) upwards  
of 1/2 a million hits, the first page of which look promising  
(although I can't believe all of them are!).

I don't own a Zaurus (or any PDA) myself, although I must say I'm  
tempted now. So let me know if you find anything definitive.
