Nokia N900 or new N9 (I have an N9, but the N900 probably has more 
hackers around it and cheaper second hand items)

Build something around a gumstix - not that cheap, but I think they have 
all the bits ready to plug together. Probably low enough power you could 
battery power it

Very easy to hack is a PC Engines Alix + laptop screen.  (In some ways 
that's called a 1 laptop per child I guess.... Add that to the list)

Good luck finding a Gentoo friendly tablet?  I would be interested if 
you find something?

Good luck
