As you know I am taking with me a lightweight computer with all the necessary bits & pieces to blog on the walk. The equipment list I need to do this is set out below:
Palm PDA with 2Gb expansion card in aluminium case.
Palm Wireless Folding keyboard (2 x AAA battery powered)
Palm Sync cable in case I need to download it on to a PC enroute.
Mobile phone (for when no WiFi connection)
Mobile phone charger
The Palm keyboard is a little miracle of engineering, and looks like this, folded out:
Folded up, it looks like this:The PDA (Palm TX) sits on it like this:
All folded up it looks like this together:
The PDA needs to go in an aluminium case for protection, so the bundle looks like this!
The whole shaboodle together with it's charger and sync cable along with my phone & its charger looks like this!
The all up weight of that lot all together is 795 grams or 1 lb 12 ozs in real money.
Not too bad at all! So with a bit of luck I will be able to blog away most evenings where there is WiFi or a mobile phone signal.
