Which PDA is Right for You?

The PDA initials stand for personal digital assistant, and these are some small gadgets that fit into your pocket. The PDAs were initially meant to be personal organizers, but the technology had made it possible for the PDAs to get other cool features such as radio, MP3 players and cameras, that make them more than personal organizers. These can become the 21st century man’s best friend.

So what else can a PDA do? Well, first of all, it organizes your day the way you want it. You can access the Internet using your PDA, make some calculations, play computer games, record video footages, take some pictures, typewrite, word processing, making and writing spreadsheets, being a reliable GPS as well. You can store any kind of info on you PDA and use it anytime, anywhere. In addition, the latest PDA are also used as mobile phones, so you need nothing more than a PDA to fill your bag or pockets and you are ready for the busy day. The PDAs are an alternative for laptops, but much smaller. One of the shortcomings of the PDA is that these have a small screen compared to the laptop; however, the PDA is lighter and smaller than a laptop.

The PDAs have a touch screen, and many of the devices that are available on the market have a color screen. The PDAs have memory card slots, and you can add more memory to the already existent figure that is featured on the PDA. The most devices have a SD (Secure Digital) or Compact Flash slot. Some PDAs have USB ports for USB flash drives. The majority of the PDAs have Bluetooth wireless connectivity and the major operating systems are: Palm OS, Windows Mobile, Blackberry OS, Linux (which is for free), Sympbian OS, Windows Vista and many others. The most popular PDAs are the HP iPaq PDA, Acer N Series PDA, AlphaSmart PDA, Amida PDA, BlackBerry PDA, Casio Pocket Viewer PDA, Dell Axim PDA, to name but a few.

All in all, the PDA is a great invention as it is several things in only one device: personal organizer, camera, mobile phone, radio, MP3 player, and connection to the Internet. Do you need anything else? If you do, it won’t be a wonder if the PDA manufacturers come up with a new range of PDAs that might feature that very thing that you need.
