Why PDA and Laptop?
You can use Laptop for anything that your PDA can...
As for which is the best.. I guess you would be better if you search the review on Cnet, pcworld or google it and compare.
as for Mapping, a GPS can be connected to your car or your computer..
As for traveling, there are many hotspot available all around you...
and for people happiness.. I think they are very happy .. if they don't, then it would not as many hotspot services as today... don't think?
To know what you want and initial configuration is the most difficult things... but as you see so many people can help you.. even google have so many informations...
I've been thinking it's time to upgrade to a Laptop and PDA from the old "pen & paper" days, but with the troublesome issues I've been seeing in forums, it makes me wonder if its still too soon?
My issue will be while working in the trucking industry, using mapping software which obviously won't affect WiFi, but linking up for internet service via Hotspots will, and it would be nice to hear from others using such a system (travel?) finding they are happy with the result!
Are there specific WiFi-bluetooth PDA's that are better than others with regard to connectivity and ease of use?
I believe it's time to move into the "electronics" realm, for the above reasons, so any help on this matter, whether it be positive or negative commenting would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
