Benefits

The benefits of a PDA include being able to catch up on email, read the latest news, listen to music, chat with friends, do your expense report, and work on various office documents—all while traveling or away from your desk. The synchronization capability means that you can also keep your device up-to-date with the data and files on your desktop PC and even use the PDA as a backup device for your various contacts, calendar items, notes, and tasks.

Today’s PDAs have far more functionality than they had several years ago, when they were simple devices for personal information management. Today, they can serve as MP3 players, email devices, word processors, Web browsers, document readers, and much more. In terms of document reading, the Toshiba device offers the Microsoft Reader application, which can be activated to download and install eBooks that have been packaged for secure distribution. Electronic versions of popular books and magazines, eBooks are available for sale on sites such as Amazon.com. Prior to downloading an eBook, you’ll need to activate your reader via a Web site and a Microsoft Passport account so that the version of the reader on your device can be associated with your Passport account. In this way, publishers of copyrighted materials can download their content to your device knowing that their material is copy protected and your device is registered.
