Does anyone know of a way to prevent continuous re-calibration of a touch
screen device while maintaining its consistent functionality.

Thank you

If you need to "continuously" (i.e. every day or even more
often) re-calibrate your screen, your PPC
is seriously broken.

Send it in for repair.

Or is that not what you mean?

The other possibility is that you are ambidextrous.

"calibration" is necessary because there is a tiny gap between the
stylus tip and the display located below a gap the contact sheet... a
tiny gap that your eyes can detect as you point which changes if the
angle of the stylus is changed.

To see this, calibarate, then click the "pencil" icon in notes.

Slowly put down a few "dots" and looking closely you will see that they
appear a mm or so beyond the end of the stylus tip.

Then hold the stylus in your other hand, generate a few more dots and
see where they appear with respect to the stylus tip.

so... if you change the way you hold the stylus or switch hands, it will
appear that the calibration has been lost.

You can also check the calibration using the same test to generate dots
at different points across the entire screen space.

What do you mean by continuous re-calibration? What do you mean by
maintaining consistent functionality?

Well, to maintain a good calibration of a touch screen, in this case
Windows CE, calibrate it once very accurate and slowly. That should be
able to make th e touch screen accurate enough.
