Well with that volume of sales, the iPhone might just count as a  
cheap sensor node with a massive CPU ;-)

But to answer your question: no, the code size is ~ 170 KB, we need  
some more RAM and I think nobody has ported it over to TinyOS yet.
But VxWorks was done and we got the patches already (against 0.5.5) -  
so that might turn out to be a very nice feature. Lots of the serious  
embedded world runs on VxWorks.

I have been running olsrd on a gumstix board. Also quite small and  
neat. Works like a charm.
