PDA vs Laptops

The marketplace for mobile devices is always evolving.

A PDA scores in these areas: 

  • The trend is towards smaller and smaller handheld gadgets.
  • Its small size allowing you to carry it anywhere with convenience. You can just slip it in your pocket and when there is a need just pop it out and do your work or play. A typical PDA weighs less than 200 grams compared to an ultra -light notebook which weighs at least a kilogram.
  • When you are out in the field for critical operations , the last thing you need is a laptop out of power. A normal laptop lasts the most 5 or 6 hours whereas some PDA accommodate AAA batteries which easily last for a month. You won't fall flat during critical operation.
