Most Linux phones and PDAs do not sync well with Linux in my limited
I would recommend a Treo 600 if you have a choice.
They are cheap because they are last year's model (they lack bluetooth, which
is a bonus in my book) and they sync with all the standard Palm tools you
find in Linux. The only difficulty is that to put PDF books on, you have to
use Adobe's PDF utils on Windows to "translate" them.
