If this palm uses a CPU different from Casio and Compaq (which is highly likely), then MAMECE will need to be specifically compiled for this CPU for you to run it. It shouldn't be a big problem, as long as a compiler is available, you'll get a Toshiba specific MAME version... sometimes :)

MS has declared that to be PocketPC 2002 compliant, they need to use an ARM processor.
The biggest problem will actually be if the buttons work correctly. That all depends on what codes Toshiba defines for it buttons.
