Pda has features such as Calculators, clock, computer games, Internet, E-mail, Video recording, typewriting and word processing, address book, spreadsheets. Radio or stereo, and even GPS.

This Paragraph is about how PDA works with the Internet. Howstuffworks.com tells us that one way PDA makers make their Pdas devices work better with the Internet is using web clippings. Instead of downloading whole Web pages, Web Clipping slices out bits of text information and sends it through the airwaves to your PDA. News headlines, phone numbers, e-mail and other information can be transmitted this way.

History

They were the first company to offer them. After that other companies started offering similar products.

It is easy to use and capable of sharing info with your PC.
