While the original PDAs were somewhat limited to keeping address, phone, calendar, and task lists, today’s PDA can function as a cell phone, fax, provide internet connectivity, and much more. |
There are many different types of PDAs, but most models work with either Palmtop software or a special version of Microsoft Windows called Windows Mobile. All models can interface with a laptop or desktop system, though optional accessories may be required.
