Surfing on pda

Hi All, BT have finally gotten ‘round to installing broadband in our area. Hooray. I would like to be able to surf the net, listen to streaming radio and download some video clips on a PDA (around the house). I would be grateful if someone could give me a ‘shopping list’ of the equipment I will need to set this up. I’m not sure if the PDA would communicate using Bluetooth or Wifi. Can anyone recommend a good PDA for this application? Any advice would be much appreciated.

I use a WiFi connection from my laptop to a LinkSys ADSL Router, which operates on 802.11g, the reason for me telling you this is that the LinkSys system came with a PCMCIA card operating on the 802.11g standard, however my laptop has a 802.11b adaptor built in, I have not tried connecting with it as once up and running I didn't want to mess around with it, but the theory is sound, if the practise is (sometimes) a little more complicated.

HTH.
