I have an iPAQ!
320x240 12 bits colour screen, 200 MHz StrongArm.
32 MB flash, 32 MB RAM.
Should work.

iPAQ has an infrared connection, which is fast enough. So you can play
multi-player. Otherwise, I would not see much reason in trying to put
the current UI on a much smaller screen.

libgtk has already been compiled for iPAQ, so I am quite confident
that compiling freeciv is no problem. The UI should be changed, though.
