In the war of the handhelds, Palm’s strategy has traditionally been “easy, basic, and cheap,” Microsoft’s “more powerful, complex, and expensive.” So you can do more with a typical Pocket PC. But you may not know just how much the latest Pocket PCs can do. Did you know you can download an entire movie onto a 128 MB Compact Flash card and watch it on your next flight? Or present PowerPoints to a crowd, via a digital projector?
Those are just a few of Brian Underdahl’s zillions of ideas -- and if they sound “off the beaten track,” don’t worry. He offers plenty of help with the meat-and-potatoes stuff, too. For instance, there’s extensive coverage of the latest versions of Pocket Office and Internet Explorer (including establishing wireless Internet, email, and instant messaging connections). You’ll learn how to connect your digital camera and upload images; how to use Windows Media Player to transform your Pocket PC into an MP3 player; and where to find the best Pocket PC games.
The book’s chock-full of Pocket PC resources (from software to keyboards to solar power add-ons). Suddenly you can use your Pocket PC anywhere, to do just about anything. Bill Camarda
