The HP iPAQ hx4705 Pocket PC (at $599) sounds like it might meet your
requirements, though I don't know if a mouse can be had for the
device. It has a 4 in. 480x640 screen (in those dimensions), WiFi,
Bluetooth, IRD, 80 MB file store, SD slot. There are bluetooth
keyboards and IR keyboards designed for use with PDAs.

Personally, I'd be more likely to look at the Sony VAIO TX610
subnotebook - if I could pay the $2000 price tag, that is. One of my
colleagues has an earlier model on the same form factor, and they're
quite nice, easy to type with (well, compared to my PDA, at least),
and have a nice, bright screen. But they are pricier and heavier than
you seem to want.
