Why do you associate PDA w/necessarily having or not a PIM?

PDA (to me) means same thing as palmtop. I look at N800 as
PDA/palmtop...not UMPC/tablet.

My iPAQ 4700 "pda" can do everything the N800 can do and more (at this
point anyways). ssh, rdesktop, vnc, etc. I sure don't consider it a
laptop replacement though...neither do I the N800.

There are devices for your wrist (wach), for your hand (pocket pc, pda,
palmtop) and larger for your hand (umpc, tablet pc).
