Try the PDA from Handspring.  They're made by the same people who
developed the original Palm Pilot and they're not too expensive.  They
even have modules that does everything... the coolest one is the one that
converts it into a cell phone.  Also, about the devices, you don't have to
use palm.net -- you can configure it to use other ISPs.
