Even though it's not said on the web page, it supports desktop Qt, which, together with Gtk+ (which is the same for small devices and for the desktop) gives us quite a bit of platforms this reader can run on.

I originally asked my friend to spend some time on porting it to Gtk+. This kind request bounced back to me and we worked on the port together. My original reason for the Gtk+ port was that I wanted this program to be then ported to Nokia 770. Being a member of the team that works on the device I knew about the internals quite a bit in advance. Two screenshots of the program being run on the device can be found here: http://only.mawhrin.net/~mss/thingies/maemo/

When I finish the package and make sure that it works on the device, the port will be properly mentioned on the home page.

As for other platforms, there are no really specific plans except for Palm, which is in works. However I am not sure what is the current status of it and what is the ETA.
