If you're interested in getting up and running as quickly as possible, 
and don't care about size, why not use Arduino, at least for the first 
stage proof of concept? Arduino is known to work with Openmoko.

Arduino is based on Atmel, so it proves it can be done, and that all the 
software is available openly.
