Cute little thing.  Hardly anyone on the Internet seems to have any idea
what's in it, which is a bit scary from a Linux / open source
perspective.  This posting suggests it's built on a Marvell Libertas
AP-32 chipset -- which means Marvell 88E6060-RCJ ethernet and Marvell
88W8510-BAN ARM9-family CPU.

(Note probable violation of the Linux kernel coders' copyright in the
shipped no-source firmware.)

If it works for you as-is, great.  I wouldn't count on it to be hackable
in the near future.
