Looking for a small transportable WiFi device to connect with at airports,
etc. Plan to look at the Asus Eeepc, Palm TX, and the HP iPac 111. Any
others? Suggestions? Comments on any of the above?



Re: TX, iPac111, or Asus

 I have the Asus, a Palm E2 and an iPAQ 2215. I got the Asus the day it came
out (Nov. 1st)
 and it's my favorite for on the road web browsing  ever since. The iPAQ and
Palm are both
 nice and a lot smaller than the Asus of course. But the Asus has a keyboard
and a larger screen.
Also a much more capable browser. The browsers of the PDAs can't handle many
of the newer
 fancy websites. In Seattle e.g. I could not buy access time on the
Bainbridge ferry with my Nokia 770.
 The PDAs could not get the ad for free access at FON spots. The Asus did
well with the FON spot.
 I didn't get to try the ferry. I used the Asus to access t-mobile hotspots
both in JFK and Seattle airports.
The iPAQ and Palm E2 are OK with t-mobile and Wayport hotspots too, but the
larger screen and the
keyboard make it worthwhile lugging along the heavier and bulkier Asus Eee
