I'm getting ready to purchase a new laptop and cell phone for my business.  Some laptops are advertised as coming with Bluetooth.  I'm looking for a good cheap way to make international calls.  I've read that one can use a bluetooth phone with Linux.  I tried searching through the Satlug posts without luck on this topic.

As for early PDAs, The second pocket device I saw first about late 1993  was
Sharp Zaurus with its own OS. It seemed neat to me because it seemed exactly
like a pocket notebook computer. Isaw a Apple Newton first but didnt know
where 2 buy one. It was even featured in Under Siege 2 movie carried by an
ex Seal Team expert( Steven Seagal). Netwon was a revolutionary device which
most of its features showed up in Palm Pilots.
I believe the Palm OS, Symbian OS and then Windows CE/Pocket PC OS/Windows
Mobile lineup. Sharp was the first PDA maker to use Debian  Linux as an OS
back about 2001-2002 I think.

Yes I used Palm PDAs more than any and I never liked Pocket PCs with Win CE.
I do want to use either Mac OS based PDA or LInux PDA now/

Check out these 2 links guys and tell me what U think:
