Most information-appliance devices have a standard 640x480 or 800x600 LCD that can be a little small for most web sites. Worse still, they usually have a row of buttons and a URL field that take up the top 100-odd pixels of the screen.
The buttons *need* to be fairly large so that you can hit them
with a fingertip or stylus (both of which are less precise than a mouse, mostly because you can't separate moving from clicking/dragging).
A good solution would be to put physical buttons above or below the screen and a separate LCD character display above the main screen. These features would give you roughly the same vertical real-estate as a much more expensive larger screen, with a cost of maybe another US$20.
