    value palmos pda

    i need a pda for work, but i don't want to spend too much cash on it (#150 max). it also needs to run palmos, as palm have by a wide margin the best linux support (home and run linux). don't need anythign too flashy, won't be watching videos or any nonsense, though i do appreciate an easy to read screen, and ease of charging (e.g. some kind of dock)

    ideas?

    They are worth looking but Sony handhelds can only use memory stick = cash++.

    I picked the Zire as the cheapest but new enough to be worth getting
