Chapter 3. Personal Digital Assistants (... > Features and Considerations

Features and Considerations

The latest generation of PDAs, such as the Toshiba e310 running Microsoft Pocket PC 2002, have a tremendous amount of software and functionality beyond the traditional contacts and calendars that you may expect. Successive generations of these devices have made them lightweight, powerful, and easier to use. Wireless connectivity via Bluetooth or 802.11b means that they can connect to your home or office network and access the Internet with ease. The Pocket PC 2002 also offers virtual private networking (VPN) support for access to corporate networks, and a number of companies offer accessories such as biometric devices for fingerprint verification to keep the data on your device secure in case of loss or theft.

If your PDA is showing signs of age, it’s definitely worth checking out some of the latest models. Given their current range of functionality, these devices may well become one of your most prized and most often-used consumer gadgets.
