This is no problem at all. I think even the original, decade-old
Palm Pilot would do that. The nice thing is that if you have this
information on a computer, you can 'sync' it over to the Palm
without having to re-enter it.

The only handheld I ever heard like that that was a prototype done
by IBM with special hardware. Real voice recognition takes a huge
amount of processing power. Now, many handhelds have voice *recorders*
that you can use to record quick notes for yourself...

Again, just what a Palm was designed for. For your needs, I'd get a
used Palm off of eBay or something. The cheapest *new* Palm lists at
$99, and a Palm IIIxe on eBay looks to be $20-$40.
