This article presents suggestions regarding choosing PDAs that can meet one's needs. PDAs seem to be the must-have IT gizmo of the moment. In the past couple of years, their popularity has begun to outgrow the IT executive fan-base that pioneered the market, and they are now winning over people in business and in the consumer world. However, when it comes to training, progress has been slow and mobile learning has yet to deliver the training revolution it promised. But, according to the manufacturers at least, training by PDA is something to watch out for. Certainly, the speed and memory of PDAs are well below the power usually demanded by e-learning programs. Most PDAs covered in this guide linger in the 300 to 400 MHz region, with memory varying from 64 to 128 Mbs.
