With so many of us on the go and away from our computers, it is not always a good idea to be out of touch with work and personal communication. Appointments become forgotten, important documents sit and wait on our computers and in general, it is a pain to leave our communication center. Now, you do not have to worry about being out of reach. A PDA can keep track of your appointments and can send and receive emails. New models even combine the use of your computer with the ability to make and receive phone calls.

The pocket PC has come a long way since the first model was introduced in the 1980’s. The original iPAQ Pocket PC’S were very basic, even though later models added the ability to see a single line of text. That is nothing compared to the newest models, which let you browse the internet, schedule appointments and allow you to send and receive documents, all while being away from the office.

Microsoft developed the Pocket PC specification so hardware manufacturers could build Windows Mobile Compliant hardware. The pocket PC is also known as a Personal Digital Assistant, or PDA. The previous versions ran on Windows Mobile 5, but have since upgraded to Windows Mobile 6. Windows Mobile 5 was a great relief to PDA owners. In previous versions, if the battery ran dead, then all information would be lost. Mobile 5 eliminated this by storing the information on a flash drive. The handhelds software also improved with version 6, with advanced capabilities, more storage and a feature that allows the PDA to act as a Smartphone.

The Windows mobile Smartphone is a combination of the cell phone and the personal digital assistant. The PC software is there in the cell phone so it can be used as a personal computer when on the go. It was this evolution of the cell phone that had many companies altering their selling tactics. Most companies elected not to pursue the pocket PC, since Smartphones were becoming more of a mainstream choice.

If you want to know what brands are on the market, then PalmOs, Blackberry and Hewlett Packard models all make great Smartphones, just to name a few.
