Yes, I have an iPAQ, too. On Windows CE, there is no Python port. Somebody
announced he's planning to work o a port, and if it's ready, we'll most
certainly find an announcement in comp.lang.python. To make the port really
useful, there needs to be decent UI and ActiveX support. And that's the
difficult part.

If you want a decent programming language for the iPAQ now, you can downlaod a
Personal Java Beta for Windows CE 3.0 from Sun's Early Access pages.
