Thanks to the valuable information by hiaig, I was able to integrate apps2sd into the IQ

Overview:

1. Partition an SD card
2. Setup a2sd

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 1: Partition an SD card.

You need to manually partition an SD card with one large partition for
data like ebooks and music, and one smaller partition for applications.
Around 200Mb for apps is usually enough. The data partition must be formatted
with vfat, the application partition must be formatted with ext3.
The order of the partitions shouldn't matter. To be on the safe side, use partition 2 for apps.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 2: Setup a2sd
  • Download a2sd (see below)
  • adb remount
  • adb push a2sd /system/xbin
  • adb shell chmod 755 /system/xbin/a2sd
  • adb shell
  • $ a2sd setup
  • Reboot and enjoy

Hint: Run a2sd without parameter to get a description of all options.

Download a2sd:

iq_a2sd v0.0.2 (latest)
iq_a2sd v0.0.1

As for stability, only time will tell I guess. It appears to be working fine over here.
