ETEN M600 Pocket PCTo avoid bringing a laptop wherever you go – it can be easier to become friends with a so-called Pocket PC.

With the new models which include also WiFi, you can practically stay connected in most cities even in less developed countries.Once you are connected to a WiFi network, you can use Skype for Pocket PC to call your loved ones worldwide for free.

Skypeout is practical too, meaning you can call (fixed) land lines as well and not only other Skype users. The rates are surprisingly low, with 1-3 Euro Cent to most countries. Apart from that you can sync your Stocks, E-Mails or Weather data and store all your contacts, MP3 and documents or use even GPS receivers to find out of the wilderness, if desired. ;-)

Here you can find a review of the pictured ETEN M600 or here for Skype via Pocket PCs.
