I used a HP PDA with built in Wifi and was able to send and receive e-mail 
in some surprisingly remote places on the PCT in 05.  It seemed that just 
about every RV park, library, motel, and sometimes private residents had 
Wifi internet to share.  I was also able to record voice journals and play 
MP3 music.
