Squeak on Handhelds
Last updated at 3:15 pm UTC on 23 December 2008
Our number one commitment is to an exquisite personal computing environment. Imagine a system as immediate and tactile as a sketch pad, in which you can effortlessly mingle writing, drawing, painting, and all the structured leverage of computer science. - Dan Ingalls, Squeak's Place in the Universe
You can run Squeak on handhelds and other pen-based systems. Why, you may ask? Read and add to What I use handheld Squeak for.

Ready to use Images and Environments
- Dynapad: (Dec 2008 - Link points to non-Squeak stuff.) An operating environment for PDAs, written entirely in Squeak. Small (5 MB) image with features to make using Squeak on such a device worthwhile. Also with standard PDA software, including games and a PIM.
- Faure: Another experimental environment used for testing ui ideas, now updated on SqueakSource.
Preparing your own images
- Running Squeak on a PDA - space saving issues
- The KernelImage provides (as of 3.9) images built up from core modules rather than stripped, which can load Monticello and other packages to grow into the set of functionality needed.
- Spoon images may also be suitable (although the Flow VM plugin must also be ported; granted, that is very easy).
