Have a look at the Open Moko phone <> and
<>.  It's about the size of an iPphone, but is a
handheld computer running Linux.  It has a phone (of course), GPS &
mapping (might be handy for biking around), touch screen, USB (albeit
v.1.1), and some other things.  A lot of the functionality is still in
development though.  But if you just want to run emacs on it, that
shouldn't be a major deal.

Also, just last week I saw a web ad for a backpack which had a large
solar panel on it.  I just checked the site where I saw it and the ad
isn't there anymore.  Google turns up quite a few hits though.
