RE: What is the best BASIC Pocket Computer
Oh, here's one I don't think anybody has mentioned yet. The TRS-80 Model 100/102, while not pocket sized, is still extremely portable, and the sacrifice of pocketability gives you a nice big screen, a full-sized keyboard, great battery life, and loads of peripheral options.

I don't THINK you can define functions that accept parameters or return a value (please prove me wrong), but it's got GOSUB like any other BASIC from MS (yeah, MS did the software on this thing). The RAM disk lets you store as many separate programs and documents as will fit in memory, which is the one thing that I think is most sorely lacking from the old Sharp pockets (including the Tandy PC-1, PC-2, and PC-3).

There's also the Model 200, but they can't be had cheaply, and are much larger with their full clamshell design.
