Chapter 5.  Playing Information  >  Using Your iPod as a PDA

Using Your iPod as a PDA

The iPod can help you manage your life almost as well as a fully featured PDA (personal digital assistant). You can use the iPod to view information you need when traveling, without the hassle of carrying a PDA along with your iPod and laptop computer.

If you like keyboards that are large enough to touch-type, you probably have trouble with the thumb-style keypads of PDAs. Small keyboards and clumsy human interfaces hamper the use of PDAs for input. I would rather use my laptop computer, which I carry with me when I travel, for all the input I would have to do with a PDA (such as contact information and calendar details). Laptops (and possibly the new tablet computers) are excellent for this purpose, and all my information is centralized on that machine.
