Well, if you don't want to stay stuck in the Palm Vx mindshift, the
handspring is well worth a look. Same spec as a Palm V, same OS, extra
coolness is added by all the expansion cards you can get for it
(http://www.handspring.com/products/springboard_news.jhtml). Plus you
can get them for £185 now from dell, apparently (announced the day after
I bought mine for £270, grr).
