I use my HP iPaq 4150. It has built-in wi-fi and that keeps the size down. The handheld skin fits well onto the screen and the album art shows up well. Wouldn't be without it.

on a side note - can people chime in about which PDA's they use to control
squeezebox? my last attempt at a wireless PDA was a Compaq ipaq that used
those enormous sleeves to hold the cards..i returned it in a day. what's out
there that has good screen rez, good wireless range etc.. yeah i could read
tom's hardware - but i want to use it for this so i'm asking here - what's
good? and what sucks?
