Re: How to develop a game for Palmtops/ Mobiles

I've been nosing around looking for a good linux based palm-top.  I've
been leaning towards installing my own linux (e.g. iPAQ instead of Sharp);
but I'm really just looking for more of the open-source types of tools (I
use linux primarily at home, and am tired of cobbling together things for
PalmOS - and the T5 doesn't seem to have a good unix available).

If, for now, I'm looking for something to noodle around with -- what are
people's preferred approach for doing this?  The Sharps look pretty nice,
but a little pricey when I can't get a touch-n-feel type of thing.  I'd
hope to get bluetooth and wireless ethernet (preferable in some SDish
card, so I can just swap in/out what I need).

I've been looking at a variety of devices on eBay (nice way to get started
:-), but not really sure what I need to kind of try things out before
sinking real money on the uber-device.  Does anyone have recommendations
on a good device with great linux functionality?  (Or, alternatively, some
place in New York City that has a good collection to try out?)
