Handheld PCs are not only fashionable, but have also proven themselves to be a most needed work tool. People who are self-employed and work as freelancers would not think of leaving home without them. It is a fact that availability plays an important role in determining whether the customer will offer more of his contracts.
Feasibility of having a PDA
The computer phone, better known as a PDA, is one of those innovations from technology that has again changed the communication structure of being available at all times. In the business world, companies insist upon their marketing, sales and customer service departments having them. A top manager does not leave home without it. Wherever sales and marketing people go, they have to be reachable. The customer is king and he or she must be able to get in touch with their sales and marketing people at all times, if not by phone, then by email or with a text message. Therefore, this mini laptop technology enables businessmen to respond quickly to messages or customer inquiries, when they are on the road and not sitting at their desks. It gives the customer a sense of security knowing that they are there, and many customers take pride in annoucing that they have a 24/7 service representative working with them. Palmtop PCs, windows PDAs and pocket PDAs, which were once considered funny little play gadgets that no one needed, are flooding the market and almost everyone wants one. Regardless of whether it is the HP Jornado, or the Toshiba E405 or the Dell Axim X50, or BlackBerry or any other type of PDA smartphone, these instruments with their different shapes and sizes keep people informed about the world around them and about all that is taking place in their workplace.
