Why?  If you really need PostgreSQL on your PDA don't use Flash.  Use an IDE
drive.
http://www.flash-memory-store.com/ibmmicrodrives.html
http://www.memorysuppliers.com/ibmmic1gbwtr.html

$369 for 4GB of storage in a compact flash card is not all that bad.  $189
for 2.2GB is very reasonable when you consider the 512MB CF is going for
$149!

These are basically IDE drives in a compact flash form factor, as such they
should have lifetimes approaching a regular IDE drive, right?  Just don't
bounce them around too much.
