PDA smartphones are just about everywhere these days. These devices combine the functions of a top of the line PDA with the ability to make phone calls and surf the internet from any location. They are the ideal hand held device for those on the go.
As a general rule, PDA smartphones have largely replaced the traditional PDA. However, that is not to say the traditional models have disappeared completely. But because smartphones incorporate more functions, these are becoming the preferred models.
One of the main advantages of most PDA smartphones is their ability to provide wireless internet access from nearly any location. Unlike a regular PDA, smartphones can use their cellular phone capabilities to allow access to the internet without the need of a local router. This means that anywhere that you have phone service, you have internet access as well.
