Hewlett Packard has developed the OmniGo 100. It differs from the Zoomer but shares some compatibility. It is currently offered through HP's retail channels.
Sharp developed a Zoomer product called the PT-9000. It's not on the general market, but instead has been sold as an OEM product for vertical applications. Here's a picture.
Hyundai plans to release a Zoomer-like product called the Gulliver. It's still in the rumor stage.
See also Zoomer PDA Rumors and Speculations for information about potential future products.
Sharp has still another set of accessories for the PT-9000, but these are not compatible with the Casio, Tandy, and AST units.
A growing collection of accessories are available for the HP OmniGo 100. See the OmniGo information page for pointers.
You can obtain a wide variety of stylii and pen bodies (some of which combine a traditional ink pen with a plastic PDA stylus) from WriteWare. See their catalog or their WWW home page for more information.
Although intended for use with Newtons, Roadrunner Tracks has a line of PDA accessories which may also wirk with Zoomers. See their catalog for details.
One PCMCIA wireless modem is supported: the Motorola EMBARC Newscard. It supports news broadcast only. Motorola has discontinued paging and e-mail delivery from its EMBARC service. Here's a picture of the card.
