I live in Chicago, IL and have an HP Jornada 820. Most of my friends have Palms and Visors, as does my mother. They have more than 60 Jornada 820s at my father's work - he is another REBOL user. Paolo Russo wrote:

You may be out of luck for the moment. /View has yet to be ported to WinCE. There are some architectural factors that make even /Core a bit memory-hungry by standards of WinCE programming languages - these should be resolved before /View would really fly. But then, watch out :) If you want to get a Jornada for REBOL, I would suggest the 720. I like the 820, but you will much appreciate the 720's extra RAM and more updated OS and software. It has the speed of the iPaq (alas, not the flash ROM), but you will really like the increased battery life and keyboard, particularly for programming on the machine. If you really want to buy handhelds for /Link you might consider getting an Agenda VR3 or some other Linux rig. It would be a lot easier for RT to get /Link running on something like that. Not that I don't want you pushing for /View and /Link to run on Jornadas like mine :) Brian Hawley Yes, I'm back :)
