I don't, unfortunately. I was working on one for the iPhone, but frankly I
find I have an allergy to Objective-C (my Mac applications use Aqua wrappers
around Perl ;-).

I don't know very much about EPOC or Symbian development, and my Palm
client wound up stillborn due to the nature of the particular library I
was using.

Like a new native Windows client, it's a big gap.
