Hi There. My name's Jim, I live in Japan. I'm new around, I was wondering if you all could help.

I'm looking for a PDA that allows for a good range of document-handling (editing, viewing of text, spreadsheets, etc.) and video. I need something with bilingual Japanese/English capability. Looking at the Zaurus specs, it seems perfect (and oh so pretty!). My question is, since the Z was discontinued, has there been an affordable replacement?
(I would love to get a nice tablet PC, but I don't have $1500 to spend on one.)

Failing that, is the Zaurus C1000 the thing I'm looking for? Like I said, I mostly need document handling (and a good Japanese dictionary is a plus), though audio/video capability are a plus. And, I think I saw someone mention emulators? wink.gif
I know it doesn't have an onboard HD. Is that a problem?
I can get one here in Japan for about 34,000yen ($320 US); would you recommend it?
