You are describing the old generation of PDA's, or so my imagination tells
me. These are no longer cost-effective or possible to sell. Also, backup
becomes an issue.
Scroll down and see HP's old calculators which stored text.
If you are after a cheap device that is a calculator plus personal
information manager (PIM), have a look at the Zire series.
$99 and you also get lots of extra applications and Grafitti 2 input.
Hope it helps,
