Thank you both for replying to my question about IPODs and Androids.  It sounds like neither will work to be fully functional with gnupg or pgp then.  Perhaps I should get a small laptop computer.  I wonder if one of those small driveless computers and a USB storage device would work.  I need an inexpensive solution for a Europe.  Since Poland and the Ukraine are in the European Union there shouldn't be any problem using pgp for private communication among friends right? I have been using pgp since the  90's as a hobby and believe if privacy is not use it will be lost.  I used to chat with Julf at Anon penit fi back then to but not with pgp.
