I've been wanting to play with one for a while, just because I wondered how they'd tally with the CE 1/2/HPC2000 devices I've got/had - but now, when I've finally got enough money that I could buy one, it seems they aren't available from anywhere except Alibaba now. Is there anywhere that anyone knows about where they're still being made? I did have one secondhand once, but it was broken from the start - I ended up giving it to my friend's daughter as a toy so she could play at being a programmer like her dad.

So, yeah. I know they're not going to be much use. But is there anywhere that's better to go than elsewhere? Or am I just as well off ordering from Alibaba?

Was thinking of buying new - also I'm in the UK. A lot don't ship here (cheaply) and of course there's power supplies. I'll keep my eyes open anyway. Thanks.

All the new ones I've seen have Via 8880 processors, and I'm not aware of any Windows CE ROM images supported by that processor. The most recent CPU I know of supporting CE 6 was the WM8650.

What about one with WEC 7? That's supported on both the 8650 and 8850. Maybe an 8850 will turn up somewhere.
