Part III: The Undiscovered PalmPilot > PalmPilot: The Electronic Book

Chapter 10. PalmPilot: The Electronic Book

In this book, you'll read about turning your palmtop into a pager, a music synthesizer, and a graphics tablet. But one of its most popular impressions has nothing to do with interactivity or stylus-tapping: the PalmPilot can serve quite deftly as a book.

Thanks to tiny programs called Doc, AportisDoc, TealDoc, and so on, you can load up your palmtop with text to carry with you for reading en route (or en hotel room). As for what to read, your options are the same as they are at home: today's newspaper, your favorite web pages, classic works from Shakespeare to Jane Austen, the Bible, your company's latest white paper, or modern poetry and fiction. Any text sitting on your hard drive can be turned into a PalmPilot book, too.
