I have an old Palmax PD131 and a Handspring Neo. Is there anything that can be done with these. I remember a LinuxFormat article a year or two ago about this but I don't know where it is.
I also have a Nokia N800 that i still like because it's so easy to carry. Are there any OS updates or alternatives for this?

Thanks,
iRichard

The latest N800 OS can be downloaded here...

To be installed using a Linux PC:
http://maemo.org/downloads/Maemo5/
and
http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/nokia_N800.php

To be installed using a Windows PC:
http://europe.nokia.com/support/product-support/nokia-n800-internet-tablet/software-update

Angstrom also do a Linux image for an N800

Thanks for the links, It might take a few days but I'll take a look at them.

It turns out that I already have the latest Maemo firmware. But the website has some new applications that I can use.
The Angstrom firmware looks like a work in progress so I'll continue using Maemo.
Thanks,
iRichard
