First of all, a few links:

* http://www.linuxdevices.com/articles/AT8728350077.html

* http://www.archos.com/products/overview/pma_400.html

* http://www.powerplaydevices.com/products/ppvs_info.html
                     (dirt-cheap, North America only though)

Don't miss out the item which was published in Slashdot just /minutes/ ago:


Also look up the Debian-based Nokia 770:

* http://europe.nokia.com/nokia/0,1522,,00.html?orig=/770

Regarding your questions:

- Go with Palm or the Zaurus if you seek good support, community and tools. I
am assuming, however, that you want to compile Linux on the PDA itself.

-The Palm Tungsten E might work with Linux:

Hope it helps,
