Short for personal digital assistant, a handheld device that combines
computing, telephone/fax, Internet and networking features. A typical
PDA can function as a cellular phone, fax sender, Web browser and
personal organizer. Unlike portable computers, most PDAs began as
pen-based, using a stylus rather than a keyboard for input. This means
that they also incorporated handwriting recognition features. Some PDAs
can also react to voice input by using voice recognition technologies.
PDAs of today are available in either a stylus or keyboard version.
which introduced the Newton MessagePad in 1993, was one of the first
companies to offer PDAs. Shortly thereafter, several other
manufacturers offered similar products. Today, one of the most popular
brands of PDAs is the series of Palm Pilots from Palm, Inc.
The war between the two main competing handheld operating systems --
Palm and Windows Mobile -- has almost become a nonissue, and reviews
say that PDAs equipped with the latest Palm OS are just as adept at
multimedia tasks as Windows models. And even Palm now offers
smartphones that use Windows Mobile instead of its own operating
system. Although reviewers have in the past generally preferred the
Palm OS, of late many are saying that it has been too long since the
Palm OS has been last updated and that the operating system is really
beginning to show its age.
Microsoft, on the
other hand, continues to update its mobile operating system. Current
Windows PDAs use either Windows Mobile 5.0 or the latest version,
Windows Mobile 6.0.
say that neither Palm nor Windows Mobile has a huge advantage in
functionality, one factor might still tip the scales. Windows Mobile is
not compatible with Macintosh computers, so you won't be able to use
iSync to synchronize your PDA with your Mac computer. You can, however,
purchase third-party software for around $40 that will let you sync a
Windows-based PDA with a Mac. Right now, only Palm OS PDAs will work
with a Mac without supplemental software.
Handheld devices such as PDAs, MP3 players, and the like are exposed to
more inadvertent abuse on a daily basis than most desktop computers.
