Question Is there any possibility to install Linux on a Casio Cassiopeia E-200?

I found a few hours ago my good old Casio E-200 on the garret which I used a lot in the past (Especially because it supports USB host mode). Windows Mobile 2002 is not really useful anymore these days and you barely find apps for it, so I had the idea to install Linux on the device.

Here are the specifications:
Operating system: Microsoft PocketPC 2002
CPU: Intel StrongARM 1110 @ 206 MHz
Memory: RAM 64 MB and ROM 32 MB
Display: TFT, 240 x 320 Pixel, 65536 colors
Interface: Serial/USB and IrDA (ver. 1.2)
Expansion slots: SD-Card (MultiMediaCard) and CompactFlash Type I and II as well as PC card via an extension module
Battery: Li-Ion rechargeable, up to 12 hours of running time CR2032 for memory protection
Input: Touch Screen, Microphone, 3 user-configurable buttons, a control pad.
Extras: Speaker and Stereo 3.5mm headphone jack
So is there any ARM compatible Linux distro which could be installed on the device?
I found only a few websites in Google which suggest "Wing Linux" and Android 1.x, but I doubt that it works.

Not that I know of; lists it as 'not compatible'. You could try asking on the Debian ARM mailing list. There was apparently work to port QT to the Casio ARM machines, but that might have been for Windows based apps?
