The availability of small cheap (~£10) screen components for the Raspberry Pi is a great solution looking for a problem. It's called an iPi, because it's like a iMac, er, sort of.

The screen is ok, at 480x320 it has a 3:2 aspect ratio and 165ppi. The viewing angles are not really close to current mobile phone standards, but are ok.
