Wow, a dual-CPU Linux handheld for such kind of price?  I definitely
must have one :)

Of course Theora should run on this thing.  If MPlayer was already
ported, getting it recompiled and linked against to a cross-compiled
version of Theora shouldn't be a problem...

But getting full-speed playback at 320x240 might be challenging.
Without hand-tuned assembly Theora might well be too slow.
