You better look at the innards carefully. There is really almost no room in

LCDs don't use a single standard interface. Some take serial data. Some
take parallel data. The number of pins, signals, levels, timing, etc. vary
wildly. An LCD controller for a 2x10 character-based LCD is nothing like
what's required for a grayscale dot-matrix graphics LCD.

I was thinking of having a cable interconnecting the Palm to the AJB, which
the AJB transferring ID3 tag info and the Palm displaying it. Also, the
Palm could be used as a very sophisticated remote control and editing
device. Your idea of using it to transfer pictures is interesting and the
AJB could even act as a serially-connected disk drive.
