Ubisurfer DW-UB01 computer

I have a Ubisurfer DW-UB01 computer that uses IceWeasel OS,which is no longer updated or upgraded.I would like to replace the OS with a more modern system,but I would like to retain the wireless connection and the use of the Vodafone chip.Because of the limited harddrive space,I was thinking of using a 32gb flash key or card.Any ideas on a suitable OS would be appreciated.

Searching Google for "Ubisurfer DW-UB01" returns this topic as the first result, so you may be on your own in terms of finding out how to replace the OS, if it's even possible.

Results for the Ubisurfer DW-UB02 show it is a cheap Windows CE laptop, so if the Ubisurfer DW-UB01 is similar, you're probably in for trouble. Do you know the device's exact specs and chipset?
