After knowing Skype has a pocketpc version, I dreamed about carrying a PDA with internal wireless card so that I can have a "mobile" phone without paying monthly fee to Verizon/Cingular/T-Mobile etc.
I had used Palm Pilot and Handspring visor before and both of them never catch my eyeball really.
I spent about $300 on eBay to buy a new Dell X50 from a Korean guy in Chicago. I have to say so far I am very satisfied. Lots of my time had been saved. For example, I check email during every 30-minute class break so I never worry about accumulated email stack in the Inbox.
A few critical tools:
1. PocketPC edition of Skype
2. Free RSS Reader for PocketPC

3. Free Podcast reader for PocketPC
This one also support RSS but it's feature just sucks: doesn't support copy&paste...
