You could try an HP200LX with Compuserve and acCIS, which is a HP200LX app
designed specifically to access Compuserve mail and forums on the HPLX. The
HPLX is light, durable, and is the only palmtop that I know of which is
really practical for Internet or the other on-line services. Compuserve has
POPs all over the world, including in Europe, and includes the HPHAND forum
that is devoted to the HP200LX.
