According to The Inquirer (link: 
it's going to be running Debian.

At first I thought it might be Arm based since Debian has an Arm port 
(and because ARM chips are low power, cheap etc) but then I found 
details of the Vortex86 system on a chip, I haven't got the link to the 
site I found earlier (I submitted it to the comments on The Inquirer but 
it's not come up at the moment), but I found this...


It fits the bill, the other site was talking about an embedded PC board 
with 128MB DDR2 memory on there, so I assume they might have been able 
to either use a load of these boards (iirc the size was about 3 inches 
square) or some custom made.
