>From what scott has said, it runs an embedded linux kernel. The Tattler,
again going from what has been said in the past, is using off-the shelf
hardware with a custom cable for interfacing with the car. (I'd bet it is a
geode w/ serial to CAN and a USB GPRS modem.) Pictures from forum

There is one major advantage that the mbed has over other MCUs. Upgrading
FW becomes as easy as using a flash drive. The mbed is based on an ARM
Cortex-M3 (LPC1768). So, it could run linux. For what it's worth, it would
be easy enough to whip up a board to go between the mbed and the simcom
board that is in current use. That board could house the CAN transceivers
as well.

Here <http://mbed.org/handbook/mbed-NXP-LPC1768> is the mbed HW reference.
