With the demise of HP Calculator Division, there is a
huge need for a good symbolic handheld computer.

PalmOS has a number of limitations, but it's definitely
the cheapest and most widely available handheld. New
models have 16mb memory, 66mhz 68000 processors,
and SD/MMC expandibility (128MB+). 200mhz+ ARM
processors are in the future.

I'm sure as HP 48/49s start disappearing, the interest in
a port of Maxima or something similar will greatly
increase. Can anyone discuss the limitations or
problems with a PalmOS port?

    Well, my TI-89 is pretty good for what it is, but a port of
    maxima for palms like my OS5 200mhz sony would be better,
    lol. This could make palm pilots actually USEFUL, and with so
    many old models that work and are cheap but are not too
    new, CAS calculators could be a thing of the past.

    We now have an android port. I can't imagine there will ever be a PalmOS port now.
