Looking for a PDA with a Firewire input

I am looking for a PDA with Firewire input. Do any exist?
Currently, there are no PDAs that include Firewire input, nor are there likely to be any in the near future. While PDA's tend to function as companions to PCs through their synchronization application, they are most often designed to survive as stand-alone devices -- which requires a delicate balance between functionality, processing power, capacity and battery life. PDAs simply do not have enough storage capability to make Firewire a sensible addition to the feature mix. It is a similar reason why we have not seen USB 2.0 in a PDA.
