What is it and what does it do

What does PDA do and what does PDA stand for?  Some things that the PDA can do are fantastic and what it does.  PDA stands for Personal Digital Assistant and some other things.  PDA acts as a daily planner or schedule that you would use to keep your life organize.  It also can have a GPS (Global Positioning System) that is like an electronic map, a phone and much more.  According to DelK4569, “A PDA stands for Personal Digital Assistant and it acts as a daily organizer or schedule.”  That is all that I mostly know about PDA and it is pretty good.

   What did PDA solve and how did it fascinate the world?  PDA’s solved many problems and helped many people.  PDA made it possible for students and working people to keep their lives much easier and much organized.  According to How Stuff Works person Carrmen Carmack, “The main purpose of a personal digital assistant (PDA) is to act as an electronic organizer or day planner that is portable, easy to use and capable of sharing information with your PC.”  It could hold a lot of data and act as a daily planner or schedule.  The PDA was a wonderful invention that changed the world and my life.

How does the PDA look like and how accurate is it? PDA has many different appearances and the accuracy has improved.  The PDA looks like a cellular that has a keyboard on it and the screen takes up ¼ of the PDA.  If you still don’t know how it looks like then this picture will really help (picture at the end of the report).   That was the last of my what it is and what it does.

History

Who, when and why was the PDA invented? This invention helped make lives much easier and less complicated.  The first PDA to be introduced was the Psion 1 by Palm Pilot, which they introduced in 1984.  The Pison 1 can be considered the to be the first PDA.  It allowed you to keep a schedule on a calendar.  Apple introduced the next PDA in 1993 to help organize lives.  According to Wikipedia “Personal digital assistants (PDAs) are handheld computers that were originally designed as personal organizers, but became much more versatile over the years. PDAs are also known as pocket computers or palmtop computers. PDAs have many uses: calculation, use as a clock and calendar, playing computer games, accessing the Internet, sending and receiving E-mails, video recording, typewriting and word processing, use as an address book, making and writing on spreadsheets, use as a radio or stereo, and Global Positioning System (GPS).”  It was like a schedule that told what you were going to do and at what time.  College students and kids that were in school used this invention more often since it could remind them what they had to study for or turn in at school.  If I could I would get a PDA to help me in school, but for right now I just use a piece of paper that helps me stay a bit organized.

How will the PDA be in the future?  The PDA will be much better and have many more accessories.  According to Wikipedia newer PDAs also will have both color screens and audio capabilities, enabling them to be used as mobile phones (smart phones), web browsers, or portable media players. Many PDAs can access the Internet, intranets or extranets via Wi-Fi, or Wireless Wide-Area Networks (WWANs). One of the most significant PDA characteristics is the presence of a touch screen.   The PDA will have many more new inventions like the new Ipod video, a much better hard drive, and many more inventions.  The PDA will change the world in the future.  The PDA now has a cellular and GPS right now but imagine the PDA turning into something much more powerful and with new surprises.  In the future I want to get a new and improved PDA!

How has the PDA improved?  The PDA has improved in many different ways.  One of the ways it has improved is in it holding much more data or information.   It also has a GPS and a cellular (cellphone) that makes the PDA much more special.  It also has much better handwriting because the first PDA that came out had horrible handwriting and you could not figure out what it was or what it read.  Gladly the PDA has improved a lot and more people are buying it more.  That was the last of my History part.
