According to http://gige.xdv.org/pda/ you need to be able to run linux
on the device. Something like the ARM processor is a much more powerful
processor than the 8-bit microcontrollers used in the Stamp and Arduino.
I'd guess you probably need at least 128MB of RAM or flash to run linux,
which is a thousand times more than an Arduino's 128kB of flash. The
Stamp only has 3kB for its program.
