Except for a few Fortune 500 titans, most business leaders don’t get the rock star treatment. As business leader you have to manage your company and your schedule. There is no fumbling assistant following behind with a pen and paper ready to write down your every word. While an administrative assistant will have all of that covered in the office, there is still the question of what to do when on the road.
Thus, business leaders have the trusty sidekick in the PDA. These handy devices can access the web as well as store documents and record spoken reminders. But if a business leader wants to feel like a rock star, here are the best PDAs to do just that.
1. palmOne LifeDrive
This baby is big; big in storage space that is. It can hold 4 GB of data. It’s screen is also big and perfect for prominently displaying information. It’s list of capabilities is big too, including wireless access, Bluetooth and speech recognition and recording technology.
2. palmOne Tungsten
This palmOne is all about power with a 416 MHz processor from Intel and memory reaching 256 MB. Putting together documents on the fly is a breeze with such speed and storage. Business leaders needing to transfer files for project teams will find this PDA to be quite capable. It also features Bluetooth technology for jumping online and sending emails.
3. HP iPAQ
This is possibly the best performing PDA available with 624 MHz processing power to go along 192 MBs of memory. Not only can you store what you need, but you can actually run them. It uses Flash and Bluetooth technology with WiFi capability. But it’s best feature just may be its color display.
4. Dell Axim
Similar in power with a 624 MHz Intel processor, this PDA from Dell has the advantage of dual slots for greater expansion. It too is highly connected with Bluetooth and wireless technology.
