Cheapest pocket device to code python on

. I could actually touch-type on the psion (a genuine [/]pocket computer!)
but I was looking forward to eventually writing a key mapper
(new key layouts are always an aggravation)
. my plans were snipped in the bud however,
because I got cheap and tried to sneak around the warranty with a universal
ac adaptor;
I didn't check the voltage myself with a meter,
and found out the hard way that it was putting out twice the expected
. apparently a lot of other people were making mistakes like that,
because shortly after psion arrived from the uk,
they dropped customer service for the usa
-- except the corporate acct's,
where they could deal with professional IT staff who didn't need their nose
wiped !
