What the heck is a Handheld PC?

For people on the go it’s convenient computing.

As far as computing goes, whether you’re a thousand miles away or just over in Building C, it’s the same thing. You need to have information with you. You need to gather information and bring it back to your office. And a Handheld PC running Microsoftr Windows® CE is the perfect machine to do it.

Why? Because it’s light, turns on instantly, and stays on for up to 12 hours with one battery.

And because it offers Pocket versions of your most-often-used desktop applications – Word, Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, Microsoft Access, Outlook®, and Microsoft Internet Explorer. They don’t do everything your desktop PC can do, just what you need most when you’re mobile. Send e-mail. Take notes. Check your calendar. Browse the Web.

Did you update your calendar over lunch? Just connect your desktop PC with your Handheld PC and any changes are automatically updated between the two machines.

Handheld PCs come in a range of sizes, from a range of manufacturers, and start at $799. Purchase one today and receive a FREE* Kingston® 8MB CompactFlash™ storage card and bonus software – an over $100 value. For a complete list of manufacturers and retailers, go to:
