In theory, yes, although if you wanted CompactFlash (as in NAND with a PATA interface) it would be easier to use the internal SDHC card slot and grab a nice, fluffy 32GB Sandisk card.

A 1.8" ZIF connector for microdrives would an expensive solution when you consider the price of these drives (130 quid for 60GB - that's almost as expensive as the system itself), but possibly worth it.

All in all it may be far more likely that we integrate some kind of eSATA connection on the board, and have a little stackable drive case you can plonk underneath it connected by a short cable.
