yeah, I was wrong: these are not poor bastards, these are mainly bastards who 
own PDAs. I've seen one pretty good toy in San Francisco at the last 
Linuxworldexpo: Qt/framebuffer Zaurus. Konqueror on this toy (WiFi upto 
1.5Mb/s) was like a fly got into honey: pretty slow on 64 MB ARM machine. 
Links could be a king of browsers in this HUGE market. Just make 
authorization/javascript/java support complete (people do lots of 
stocks/trade on their PDAs here in US), plus nice and consistent fonts 
(better be the same their embedded systems have...).

For the rest poor of us who are still capable to upgrade their X just fine, 
plain old freetype/Unicode trutypes could be a nice solution, though.
