I use a wireless service that requires it's proprietary PCMCIA card.
I'm already paying for their wireless service and I want to be able to
check email and have Outlook in a handheld. The handheld would need to
have an OS that accepts Windows XP software. Any suggestions?

There are no pocket pc's with windows xp. xp is not available for pp.

There are compact flash and sd-cards with inbuild wifi.
sandisk has a sd wificard with 256 mb ram.

Just use the right software to spoof the mac nr off your pcmcia card,
and connect with pocketpc to you wireless provider.

do a google for spoofing....

If you need to be sure a computer will run Windows XP software, then
you need a computer running Windows XP. Windows 2000 will support
many/most, but not _all_ Windows XP software. Windows CE/Pocket PC
will support _none_. I'm pretty sure at least one facility exists to
let Linux run Windows programs (WINE?), and assume it will be pretty

With that in mind, check out:
I've seen at least one competitor, but don't remember details.
