[Lab] Looking for Help!

This is my first post, so please forgive me if this isn't getting to the
right place, or seems off-topic.
I'm looking for tablet-style computer on which to do digital painting, and
most likely animation, video editing, and maybe even email etc (most
importantly, though, digital painting). I've looked at Tablet PC's,
modbooks, and cintiqs, but am unable to make a decision, as I really have no
expierience with these things. Portability is important, as I'll be biking
around with the thing, and would want to be able to produce studies on the
spot. Any advice?

IF you use a cell phone, most of them have a blue tooth or a wire
that will emulate a serial port / modem. you can read the Text
messages using what they call AT commands. I made a C++ api for that
too with call backs and every thing and I also have a C# example for
that some where if you are interested.
