HP Jornada 820. Under 3 pounds, nice 640*480 screen, 8-bit colour,
built-in modem, 190 MHz Strongarm, 16 RAM and 16 flash. A friend who
has one reports performance in the range of a 233 or 266 Pentium II
and battery life around 10 hours. List price is about $1000 US.

It comes with Windows CE and Office CE. I won't buy one until Linux
is available for it, but that might not matter to you.
