No the Moblin 2.0 and 2.1 releases target NetBooks and Nettop devices
solely. A later release of Moblin 2.1 will also be targeted for MID
and Phone devices but will be using a slight different interface to
the current Moblin with the same underlying tech.

They are targeting Netbooks for the online type of device. They are
targeted at web browsing, Social Networking, Media
(Audio/Video/Photos) and Instant messaging running on small
inexpensive netbook devices. They will do presentations and word
processing quite happily as well as it based on gtk and clutter so all
the usual gnome apps will run but that's not the main target.
