Chapter 6. Buying a Wi-Fi PDA > Understanding Handheld Computers

Understanding Handheld Computers

The main purpose of a handheld computer is to help you organize your life. All handheld computers include applications that allow you to

  • Manage and organize appointments using calendar and datebook software. This is one of the most important handheld applications. You can enter meetings, appointments, and much more in a format analogous to a “Day-Timer” or similar book-style engagement calendar. Handheld calendar software also allows you to enter repeating events, a great way to track standing appointments, birthdays, and more.

  • Enter notes, memos, or even random poetic musings with a memo pad application.

  • Perform mathematical operations with a calculator.

  • Track the things you need to do with a task list application.

  • Manage your contacts and their information with an address book application.
