    A pocket pc with wifi and a usb port and MagicJack plugged in at a hot
    spot be as good as a cell phone but cheaper?

    The one's I've seen don't, and besides the magicjack needs to plug into a
    phone via a phone cord to work.
    So if you want to carry around a PocketPC, have a magicjack sticking out of
    it (if it does indeed have a usb connector) and then run a line to a regular
    phone that you carry around you might be able to use it, but you would
    certainly be better off spending the money on a cellphone.
    PS: How many pockets do you have? Can you fit one of these in
    one?<http://codinghorror.typepad.com/.a/6a0120a85dcdae970b0120a86db463970b-pi>

    Skype might work though if he finds a version that runs on that
    PocketPC, no?
