Well, check carefully.  As I recall, those parts have been
discontinued.  Although there is software, you may not be able to
build products once it is done.  I'd suggest looking first at
Fujitsu, and second at Silicon Motion.  Both of these companies
have claimed to be dedicated to providing the embedded
parts for a long time.

Of course.  It has an internal LCD/video controller, and there should be
drivers in various kernels.
