7. Palmtops, Personal Digital Assistants - PDAs, Handheld PCs - HPCs

Palmtops and PDAs are currently not much covered in this HOWTO. Anyway it may be useful therefore, too. I just include some links, most of them are from Kenneth E. Harker's page :

  1. Highly recommended is the page by Russell King ARM Linux about PDAs with ARM CPU and with links to other Linux related PDA sites.
  2. PalmOS-HOWTO (former Pilot-HOWTO) by David H. Silber.
  3. Newton and Linux Mini-HOWTO .
  4. Newtl: Newton/Linux Communications System Newtl allows a Linux machine to communicate with a Newton PDA. Automatically send e-mail, print, and fax outboxes through your Linux machine, and more.
  5. PilotLink and XCoPilot PilotLink is an utility that performs data transfers from 3com PalmPilot handheld computers to your Linux machine. XCoPilot is an emulator of the PalmPilot operating system that runs under Linux.
  6. PalmVNC is an implementation of the Virtual Network Client architecture that will allow you to use a Linux or other UNIX machine to put up a (tiny) X Window on a 3COM PalmPilot.
  7. PDAs and infrared remote control, see Hiromu Okada
  8. AFAIK you can run Linux on the IBM PC110 (a tiny PC handheld that's no longer manufactured). There's a HOWTO on it running around somewhere but I don't have an URL, instead I found a description in LINUX REDUX July 1997 by Alan Cox.
  9. For more information on Virtual Network Computing, see VNC .
  10. There is also the Handheld Systems(TM) On-line Archives and a search engine about palmtop related topics Palmtop.Net/ .
  11. I have setup a small page about Linux with PDAs and Handheld PCs, too.
