There is some PDA that can run ssh. We have a few Verizon Aircard 555's 
(155kbit/s) and a Verizon
Aircard 333 (19.2kbit/s) and SSH is a pain with it. If you can live with 
ping times of 300-800ms and
lost packets that it should be fine. But for me especially on the 
19.2kbit network SSH is a major pain.
Luckily I do not have to use it too much.
