PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless You'll want to see this. "A teardown chronological history of PDA Organisers spanning 17 years: 1986 Psion II Organiser, 1996 Palm Pilot 5000, 2003 HP iPAQ 5550." Very thorough teardowns of the hardware, detailing all the chips and other on-board parts. Hardware porn, basically. Great work by David L. Jones.

you could install a GNU/Linux-based OS called Familiar Linux on some revisions of the iPAQ line.


I really wish I'd done that at the time! WinCE had decent developer tools, but other than that I just could never get on with it.
