Dont get the Palm. I bought a Life Drive, and had to bring them back, each time the unit wouldnt work, or sync with my PC.
I hear HP makes good hand helds.
I got a phone pocket PC from my cell co. And was able to load intellichess, with atrial version. Seems to be weak, and then strong, has 3 levels, easy, good, and strong.
the Novags are expensive, but you can get one that will be 2200 or 2500 strength. For the money, you can get a handheld PC, for almost the price of a good Novag.
My advice is get a HP handheld, and pocket fritz.
