+ Wi-Fi, not PDA

I'm looking for a device with the following features:
1. GPS
2. wifi - I should be able to transmit location info using 802.11b/g
3. small form factor, battery operated - it will be mobile

It doesn't need to have a screen.

I can only find PDAs with these features, but they seem like an overkill. Any tips on ready products / components from OEMs will be appreciated.

Thanks !

    I really don't know of any currently shipping devices which are not PDA based and transmit location via wifi. There are some devices expected to be released in the next 6-12 months with wifi capabilities, but they are not out yet and there is no word if they will offer the ability to transmit your location.

    Thanks Tim !
    Do you know of any individual components that may be integrated for this purpose ? If so what do I need, and are there any constraints for matching the components ? I should be able to put some engineers on the job, but they don't have knowledge on gps systems yet.

    I'm not that familiar with electronics production. The company most GPS manufacturers use for GPS chipsets is SiRF.
