RPDA 696                       My favorite PDA. An Asus Mypal 696 repackaged into a ruggedized case by a German company.
The optional 3Ah battery lasts for several days.


HP iPAQ 114                   Cheap and small. The only drawback is the relatively short battery lifetime.

                                           CS-HIQ100XL (2250mAh)

                                           CS-RX4000XL (2400mAh)

Aquapac                          Cheap and proven. Attaches smoothly to the screen and allows easy drawing. Good and economical solution for the iPAQ 114.
