TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
PocketPC (CE 3.0) will do most of that and run well on the Compaq iPaq or HP
My company develops the software to enable wireless email and web access, so
I've played with both the iPaq and the Joranada quite a bit (I vote for the
iPaq if you can find one).
The PocketPC OS will do most of what you want.
> Is a telephone
Not yet, but I've heard this functionality is under development.
> Functions as a pager

> Allows Internet access
Yes - works great (with Infowave software :-)
> Acts as notepad - uses MS Word is ideal
Yes, but skimped down Pocket Word
> Allows downloading/docking into your main computer to transfer data
Yes, using ActiveSync
> Has Fax capabilities
Not that I know of, but you can receive email attachments.
> I've found wireless phones with some of these functions, and

> type units (Royal, HP's, etc.) that offer others, but no
> combo unit small
> enough to handle them all yet.
If you want to have voice, email and limited browsing capabilities, WAP
phones (data enabled phones with built in Web browsers - Nokia or phone.com)
are a good option. But you loose out on all the other functionality.
Good luck in your search.
