Hmmm, this is not a bad suggestion - it would probably suit my needs
quite well. 

Currently I have decided to replace my faulty cellphone with another
basic model and keep using my separate Pocket PC.  I expect to keep
using WinXP on my games PC for a couple of years yet, so I can carry on
syncing with that.  I will keep an eye on what Palm are doing over the
next couple of years as well as the development of Linux based PDA
phones - I am sure that the tech will keep on improving! 

At the moment my finances are tight and I would have had to pay off the
credit card for whatever I bought so I decided that there wasn't good
enough reason to replace my PDA + Phone with a PDA phone right now. 

Thanks anyway.
